Thousands of Canadians Expected to March in Solidarity with the Women's March on Washington, January 21, 2017

Canada NewsWire

TORONTO, Jan. 20, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - On Saturday, January 21, 2017, Canadians will rally in support of the Women's March on Washington. Participants will march and rally in solidarity with millions around the world, one day after the U.S. presidential inauguration. 

The Canadian Women's March is travelling with nearly 400 people from Eastern Canada on buses to Washington, DC, to participate in the Women's March on Washington. Thousands of other women and men will also be travelling from Canada to Washington, DC to be part of this historic march on the U.S. capital.

For those unable to attend that event, over 500 sister marches are being held in more than 32 countries worldwide, including 30 Canadian cities - and counting.

"Canadians are coming together to say loud and clear that discrimination will not be tolerated, and that we stand in support of all those who have been the targets of hatred within Canada and abroad," said Marissa McTasney, from the National Committee of the Canadian Women's March. "This is a show of equality, solidarity, diversity and inclusivity. We are marching in support of indigenous peoples, people of colour, Muslims, immigrants, LGBTQI+, people with disabilities, women and others."

The outpouring of support from across Canada reflects its wide diversity, bringing together business owners, social justice groups, religious communities, labour groups, politicians, artists, students, girls, boys, women, men, and non-binary individuals, just to name a few - everyone who believes that women's rights are human rights will be marching on January 21, 2017.

The marches, organized by a grassroots coalition - including many first-time organizers - will collectively be one of the largest international demonstrations ever assembled.
