Here Are The Major Protests Being Planned Across The Country To Protest Trump’s Inauguration

On January 20th, Donald Trump will officially be sworn in as the 45th president of the United States of America. Let that sink in for a second, because that is now our reality.

If just reading that makes your heart sink and your blood boil, then you’re probably in the majority of Americans who will not sit back in silence. Millions across the nation are resisting the incoming president’s inauguration by protesting that Trump is indeed “not our president.”

While Trump and his crew will be busy with their three-day inauguration festivities (minus any A-list talent), which includes a “welcome concert” on the 19th, an inaugural parade on the 20th, and a prayer service on the 21st, many others will be fighting back. Here’s how America will shout out against the incoming president.

Organizers want everyone, especially Angelenos, to boycott everything that day, including work, school, shopping, etc. The mission for this march is to demand an “economy that works for all, a political system that is transparent and representative, an energy system that is sustainable for the long term, media which can be trusted to provide real and honest information, justice for oppressed communities, and united society.”

Kshama Sawant, a Seattle council member who’s also a socialist, is backing this protest and urging people to join her at this protest. “History demands that we immediately begin building mass peaceful resistance to Trump’s anti-worker, misogynist, anti-immigrant, and racist agenda.” Sawant said in a letter.

According to organizers, this will be a “peaceful, non-violent demonstration showing discontent toward the rhetoric that won the president-elect the election and continues to empower similar rhetoric and skewed thinking within groups of hateful people.”

This will probably be the most-attended march of the weekend. More than 200,000 people are expected to be in D.C. to express to the new administration and congress that women’s rights are human rights.

If you can’t make it to D.C., there are various protests happening in other cities in conjunction with the Women’s March. The L.A. gathering will also be a march in support of equality and promote civil rights for every human.

There’s also a slew of walk-outs planned for colleges across the country. From Berkeley to Philadelphia, students are organizing their own major protests against Trump. Click here for more information on student protests.

How could you forget?


Apparently, she hasn’t forgotten about it either and maybe even misses it a bit.


You see, on January 7, she shared her first Instagram Story of 2017 that featured her chillin’ with WOWP costar David Henrie, who played her brother.

There’s a funny moment where David insists that he launched her Twitter account and that at the time Selena couldn’t even say “Twitter.” Bwahahah. Selena makes sure to mention that he did NOT start her Instagram account. Hmmm, could that be because she wants all the credit for being crowned the queen of Instagram in 2016?

Surely, you haven’t forgotten that Ms. Gomez had the most popular pic of last year.
