Across the world, men and women are coming together to show Donald Trump that the politics of hate will never win.
He hasn’t done anything as president yet. But Donald Trump has said so much in the past that reveals shameful attitudes towards women and women’s rights.
It would be easy to be disheartened. But despair is not an option. We have to seize this opportunity to stand together and stick up for human rights.
So on Saturday 21 January, the day after Donald Trump’s inauguration as US President, women and men in dozens of cities and countries worldwide will take to the streets for the Women’s March. They’ll show the world that the politics of hate, fear and division will never win.
Our world is interconnected. The President of the USA makes decisions that affect people everywhere. Women’s rights activists around the world are deeply concerned that Donald Trump’s politics might turn back the clock on women’s rights, but it doesn’t have to be the case.
One way to stop this from happening is to get involved and stand up for what we know is right. Amnesty will be marching in in several countries, including the US, UK and the Netherlands – we hope to see you there!
We stand with all those marching for the protection of fundamental rights. We are united across the world, no matter where or who you are.
