From Grove Harris, TOU Main Representative to the United Nations:

[/vc_column_text][mk_blockquote font_family=”none”]This gathering of a million people was so large that actual marching was pretty limited. (With 600,000 confirmed people on public transportation, it had to be larger than estimates.) From the crowds on the metro platforms to the solid masses in the streets, it was a time to slow down and enjoy the thoughtfulness of people’s expressions. I enjoyed handing out cards about our online video, Roots of Change: Food Sovereignty, Women and Eco-Justice, and listening to most of the speakers online later.


People came together peacefully to reclaim our democracy, to affirm women’s humanity and rights, and to celebrate reclaiming our streets and our capital. We found common ground for collective action.  It was a powerful affirmation of renewed civic engagement.[/mk_blockquote][vc_separator color=”custom” accent_color=”#25312e”][mk_gallery title=”Enjoy these images from the march!
