PHOTOS: On Anniversary Of Trump's Inauguration, Austinites Rally For Second Women's March
Women's Marches are taking place across the country on the anniversary of Donald Trump's inauguration. Last year, tens of thousands of protesters packed streets in many cities — including in Austin, where an estimated 50,000 people crowded along Congress Avenue and on the Capitol grounds.
This morning, a much smaller group of protesters gathered at Austin City Hall in preparation for a march to the Texas Capitol.
Lisa Smith, Jessica Salinas and Jill Young came to protest today. Salinas says she’s “Appalled by everything except the spirit of people turning out.” These ladies say attacks on institutions and women’s health are concerning. pic.twitter.com/Ay3taGFTwg— Ashley Lopez (@AshLopezRadio) January 20, 2018
Morgan Anderson, Steven Christian, Durren Anderson, Jonna Anderson and Sayward Anderson came out to protest again this year. Morgan says she feels worse than she did last year about the state of the country. Sayward says she’s hopeful about the midterm election, though. pic.twitter.com/Tctqyf1KR7— Ashley Lopez (@AshLopezRadio) January 20, 2018
