Following the 45th president of the United States Donald Trump’s inauguration in Washington DC on January 20, 2017, more than 2 million people have taken to the streets in over 670 rallies around the world on January 21, in affiliation with women’s rights group Women’s March on Washington.
There was no official representation in Hong Kong, but sister SAR Macau saw groups of people gathering around Estrada da Baía de N. Senhora da Esperança in Taipa this afternoon, marching in solidarity with the anticipated 200,000+ attendees at the flagship event in Washington.
