Women’s March on Washington

Women's March on Washington

Things have changed in the political landscape of the USA and what happens in the USA (for better or worse) has an effect on Canada and the rest of the world. Women are taking a stand by having a March on Washington on Saturday, January 21st, 2017.

In Edmonton, several people have come together to coordinate a March on Washington – Edmonton solidarity march. Kudos them!

If you would like to show your support for women, human rights, the environment, peace, or whatever your concern is about this change in direction by the US government and the person that will be crowned president then I strongly encourage you to come and join me at this event.

There are going to be over 20 solidarity marches across Canada and hundreds across the USA.

This event is open to ALL people. This is not only a women’s ‘issue’. I am calling all men to come and show your support for equality, respect, diversity, peace, human rights, justice and whatever value you hold dear.

First Trump came for the women
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a woman.

Then Trump came for the people with disabilities
And I did not speak out
Because I did not have a disability.

Then Trump came for the African Americans
And I did not speak out
Because I was not African American.

Then Trump came for the Mexicans
And I did not speak out
Because I was not Mexican.

Then Trump came for the Muslims
And I did not speak out
Because I was not Muslim.

Then Trump came for the gay, bi, and trans people
And I did not speak out
Because I was not gay, bi or trans.*

Then Trump came for the Jews
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew.**

Then Trump came for the journalists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a journalist.***

Then Trump came for the judges
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a judge.

And now Trump is coming for the Constitution of the United States
And if I do not speak out, what am I?

 

I hope to see you at the March on Washington – Edmonton tomorrow (Saturday, January 21st, 2017) at 1pm. It will be staged at the north side of the Alberta Legislature Building.

There are going to be several people from Edmonton and Canada that will be travelling to Washington to participate in this historic stand. Earth’s General Store will have two staff members at the march in Washington – because it is important to me. I will be at the march in Edmonton – because it is important to me

Earth’s General Store will have two staff members at the march in Washington – because it is important to me. I will be at the march in Edmonton – because it is important to me. Will you join me and hundreds or even thousands of others that will be at the legislature tomorrow?

We, in Edmonton, can stand and march in solidarity with those in Washington and for those that do not have a voice. Join us!

Thank you to the organizers of this event.
