Protesters carried signs that read 'Feminism, not Facism'
Massive Women’s March Protest Remains Peaceful
BY JOHNNY VIZCAINO
Thousands of protesters, and perhaps as many as 6,000, most of them women, packed Albuquerque’s Civic Plaza to support women’s rights and show solidarity for a national march in Washington, D.C.
The crowd braved chilly temperaturs and the threat of rain to send a message to President Donald Trump that they will not stand for a rollback of women’s, LBGTQ, immigrants’ or disabled persons’ rights.
Protesters carried signs that read “Feminism, not Facism,” “Fight Like a Girl,” “Ignorance = Violence,” and “We Won’t Go Back” and chanted slogans.
The crowd that marched on Washington was estimated at between 250,000 and 500,000 and was so large organizers had doubts about whether it would be allowed to march on the White House as planned.
