Turtle Learning: World Wide and not just Nation wide revolt against the new POTUS

Turtle Learning: World Wide and not just Nation wide revolt against the new POTUS:

 World Wide and not just Nation wide revolt against the new POTUS


"WE WHO BELIEVE IN FREEDOM CANNOT REST..."    ELLA BAKER




January 21st was a day of hope -- real hope!  Over 3 - 4 million people world wide demonstrated and marched against the presidency of a man who basically disrespects and wants to deport and or jail anyone who is a white anglo saxon protestant and rich. 

Blogger Patrick James Walsh had this to say about January 21st: 


Nothing like this has ever happened before in American history: one day after the swearing in of a new president, a massive nation wide revolt and rejection.
No American president has ever inspired such a response, but then no American president has so repulsed and frightened and insulted the American people as deeply as does Trump.  .....Mass Revolt Against Trump in New York and Across America

GUARDIAN today said - We Made History.  Apparently these were some of the largest demonstrations ever in our history.  I like this statistical enumeration of our victories: 

Whoops!  Can't find an actual graph or chart. So I'll make one up. 

WASHINGTON D.C.                    500,000

LOS ANGELES                            750,000

NEW YORK CITY                       250,000

CHICAGO                                    250,000   [ALL MY FRIENDS SAY THIS MEANS WAY MORE]

DENVER                                      150,000

SEATTLE                                     130,000

BOSTON                                      150,000

LONDON                                     100,000  

PORTLAND                                 100,000

TORONTO, CANADA                  60,000 

AUSTIN                                         40,000

ST. LOUIS                                     10,000 +

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA               10,000

PALM BEACH                               7,000

SAN FRANCISCO                     150,000

OAKLAND                                 100,000


An article from US Uncut has "official estimates"  = http://usuncut.com/news/official-womens-march-attendance/    
AND
Here's a google doc of estimates: high and low -- https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1xa0iLqYKz8x9Yc_rfhtmSOJQ2EGgeUVjvV4A8LsIaxY/htmlview?sle=true#gid=0 
It shows Los Angeles low estimate:  200,000 and high:  750,000.  That is kinda crazy -- more accurate I think would be between 500,000 and 750,000.

Worries are that this won't continue. That the DNC types like Debbie Wasserman
