My only post since the election has been the one below. The words just didn’t come to express my sadness, anger, fear, frustration and deep depression as Hillary Clinton‘s (Electoral College) loss to Donald Trump. Honestly, the first two days, I awoke with a start with the realization, “It’s real.”
Yes it’s real and as you know, people have been taking to the streets. Traffic has been snarled around Trump Tower all week and today there is a protest starting at Union Square and marching up Fifth Avenue. This is from the Facebook post:
Join us in the streets! Stop Trump and his bigoted agenda!
Meet you at Union Square at 12PM and march to Trump Tower (725 5th Ave) at 2PM
Divided is the reason we just fell. We must unite despite our differences to stop HATE from ruling the land.
STOP TRUMP! STOP RACISM!
JOIN THE PROTEST at Union Square
Saturday at 12 PM
Bring signs, snacks, water! Be safe!
This is a peaceful protest. Violence/vandalism will not be tolerated
In case you are wondering WHY these protests are happening all around the country, check out this graffiti that appeared right after the election as outright bigotry and hatred is justified by Trump’s election. See you in the streets.
