They've got quite a crowd heading to downtown Ajijic.
As I have to admit, that subject is about as political as you can get......so I suspect it won't last long on here. Rolling Eyes

The one in D C is huge. All over the U.S. I guess later the pillaging, fires and riots will commence. Isn't democracy a thing of beauty?

There were more than two million registered marchers, according to the official Women's March website.

The Ajijic march was beautiful, joyous and uplifting. I am not good at estimating crowds but it seemed at least several hundred marched. Many people lining the sidewalks, cheering and waving. The speeches at the plaza before were too long. But the march was awesome and the speeches at the amphitheater short and inspiring. The closing ceremony was moving with singing, laughing, full on hippy happy.

Dang. I was at the well-attended plaza, but had to leave before the march to the lake. Sounds like I missed the best part. Thanks.

I love your description, "hippy happy"! I know exactly what that is.

I heard Tommy Thompson, who else spoke?

NY Times March photos

Ajijic made the NYT march photos. I was at the rally, and the feeling was wonderful.

Cheers,

The other speakers were Ed Tasca, Janet Kimbel and a very articulate young man from Cuba whose name I didn't get. Val Jones was the Master of Ceremonies. The feeling was electric and wonderful.

According to the official Women's March Web page, there were 673 Sister Marches, 19 in Mexico, and nearly 5 million people marching.

And some pretty scary news out of Canada

Jajajaja! Been too busy to check IL lately, and especially too busy to check over there. But you inspired me. A simple thread/question on TOB: "Was the local march picked up by any Mexican Press?" gets followed by a few replies with links to coverage and then......BOOM!....the hammer comes down. Not a single political comment. And yet, LOCKED. LIGHTS OUT..

Yes and I was just responding to Lexie who was looking for a newspaper article with the same links I posted here. I know she has trouble getting out and around.

Flamingo I read the article - scary. A couple of Canadians want to go to the inaguration and march and are turned back at the border. and I caught a glimpse of the news yesterday. the orange man was signing executive orders one after the other. Who knows what we lost in the US yesterday.

I was in Seattle during the Seattle march. They expected 50,000, but 200,000 or more showed up they said on the news. And although some did not want others to say things about Trump, there were many many anti Trumps signs in the street
