As Donald Trump was sworn in as the new US President and signed his first decrees, hundreds of thousands of people marched in cities around the world, sending a message that they will not let his agenda go unchallenged.
“The turnout at the Women's March in Washington D.C. was so big that crowds packed the entire route, preventing organisers from leading a formal march towards the White House,” Telegraph publication reported.
The participants in the epicenter of the Women’s March in Washington D.C. on Saturday agreed that even if this rally was their first action against Donald Trump’s presidency, it would certainly not be their last.
Millions of women gathered in the nation’s capital and in hundreds of cities around the world to march in opposition to what they see as the Trump Administration’s prejudiced views on women and minorities. March was supported in Berlin, London, Paris, Rome and other cities.
Madonna delivered a remarkable speech from the stage. The Queen of Pop began her remarks by addressing the crowd of an estimated 500,000 women (and men) in the nation's capital and alluding to Donald Trump becoming the 45th President of the United States, saying "Welcome to the revolution of love, to the rebellion, to our refusal as women to accept this new age of tyranny, where not just women are in danger but all marginalized people, where being uniquely different right now might truly be considered a crime. It took this horrific moment of darkness to wake us the f--- up."
She later said, "To our detractors that insist that this march will never add up to anything, f--- you." She then repeated the expletive for a third time.
It is noteworthy that huge number of famous celebrities took part in the march, including Emma Watson, Madonna, Jake Gyllenhaal, Charlize Theron, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Rock and many others. Even John Kerry strolled with the crowd.
