More than one million crowds rallied in Washington and across the US on Saturday to give a roaring reply against the installation of President Trump in the White House.
What began as a Facebook event by a Hawaii retiree became an unusual international condemnation of a new president, that thronged cities large and small — from Paris to Park City, London to Los Angeles, Utah, Miami, and Melbourne, Australia.

Protestors in the US capital and other cities said they were encouraged to join because of Trump’s divisive attack and his derision of women, minorities and immigrants. In signboard and shouts, they caricatured what they characterised as Trump’s vulgar criticism and sexist behaviour.

“We just want to make sure that we’re heard,” says Mona Osuchukwu, 27, a D.C. native.
“I want her to know that she has a voice,” she talked about her 3-year-old daughter, Chioma, who joined her on the March. “No matter what anyone tells her, especially as a black woman in America.”
Even some well-known figures have joined the march!
Among the famous personalities were Madonna, who swore while discussing Trump before singing her 1989 hit “Express Yourself” Also, singer-actress Cher and former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, beckoned luck to supporters as he walked his yellow Labrador, Ben.

The fear and outrage against the man who changed the face of American politics, and now has risen to the most commanding position in the United States echoing at notable protest sites around the world, from the Trocadero in Paris to Trafalgar Square in London.
Will Trump be able to ‘Make America Great Again?
“Marina Knight, a 43-year-old executive assistant, and her 9-year-old daughter were two of the tens of thousands marching in London.”
“This is her first march,” says Knight, introducing her daughter. “It’s the first time we felt it was vital to March. I believe the rights we take for granted could go backwards, and we owe it to our daughters and the next generation to fix this somehow”
