#StillResisting perSisters – Women’s Solidarity March ~5K! Truth Commission 1/25!

Dear Friends! 716-332-3904; 716-931-3520 1/24/18

The #StillResisting Weekend was amazing!! Huge thanks to the 35 cosponsors for sharing, and to the ~5,000 who participated!!

We had
– a wonderful time with our friends Science Demands Action (/Buffalo March for Science) at great sign-making parties on Friday and Sunday, with scores of participants;

– a day to remember gathering and going on the #StillResisting Bus to Women’s March in Seneca Falls, the birthplace of the US Women’s Movement (on this 100th year after we women won the right to vote!). Many thanks to Maureen Milligan and the stalwart bus-full!! What a time!;

– 4,500-5,000 –yes!!- at the Sunday Women’s Solidarity March!! (police estimate). Not only was the turnout record-breaking, the Spirit and principles very evident, the speakers fantastic, and the support overwhelming, but the message also came through loud and clear – Equality, Empowerment and SOLIDARITY!!
Attendees and reporters seemed crystal clear the we were there to #UnitetheStruggles in Truth and Love.

Woman’s Solidarity March – 4.5-5K – We’re Growing and We Shall Overcome!!

What an inspiring #StillResisting Weekend!!! Amazing to have had you all – us all – together for people and the planet!! #UnitetheStruggles #PowertothePolls #PowerWITH-NOTPowerOver!!

Some 4,500-5,000 came out to stand up and march for Each Other, for human rights, gender justice, racial justice,  – immigrants and refugees, trans and Muslim – the poor, the oppressed and the prisoners of every injustice.

THAT is who and what we were marching for, and that is WHY We Shall Overcome.

We did not come out for hate but for Love, not to blame but to inspire, not to curse but to develop the courage and the faith to know that we can change the world, we can make a difference, and together, si, se puede!!!

Those who think it’s just about women’s rights – well seems they didn’t read our plan or hear our speakers. However imperfectly, we are trying to #unitethestruggles

We also couldn’t be more grateful to our more-than-wonderful speakers, singers, drummers, helpers of every kind, and last but especially cosponsors. Thank you/Asanti/Gracias/Tashakor/Sucran/Moracozay/Sukriya/Polikalal/ShehSheh/Merci from the bottom of our hearts!!!!  #UnitetheStruggles!!!!
