Over one million march in DC for women’s rights!
This was the biggest march ever in the United States. That’s right, the biggest ever.
They were pro-choice, anti-Bush, and made sure the country (and politicians) heard their message, which was – We vote, and we will be voting in huge numbers in November.
Protesters crowded the National Mall on Sunday to show support for abortion rights and opposition to Bush administration policies on women’s health issues in one of the biggest demonstrations in U.S. history.
There was no official crowd count, but organizers claimed more than one million people participated.
Pink- and purple-shirted protesters raised signs reading “Fight the Radical Right,” “Keep Abortion Legal” and “U.S. Out Of My Uterus” and covered the Mall from the foot of Capitol Hill to the base of the Washington Monument.
“Vote That Smirk Out of Office,” was a characteristically political placard targeting Bush, but Dorothy Smith, 76, of Eldridge, Missouri, carried an emblem she made herself — a wire coat hanger draped with a sign reading “Never Again.”
The organizers for this deserve huge kudos, the crowd size and enthuasism surpassed all expectation.
