Saturday, January 21, 2017

LOS ANGELES-Across the United States and throughout the globe women rallied and marched in opposition to now president Donald Trumps threats, lies, federal appointments and anachronistic notions of a lost cultural empire. Women and men of all pronouns rose up and met publicly worldwide with numbers reaching 750,000 people in downtown Los Angeles or one million in Washington D.C. to denounce the coming administration's policies. They met to organize, they met for the fellowship that comes from consoling and affirming one another. They met to state openly that they were alarmed, alarmed for the survival of 250 years of American civil progress.

For the 15th year marking International Women's Day in Southern California, on March 8th a warm and sunny Saturday, a mixed race and enthusiastic crowd of approximately 450 women, men, quite a lot of young people, and lots of children gathered for a free concert and speakout at the MacArthur Park Band Shell in Los Angeles.

This year: IWD events internationally marked Haiti's revolutionary legacy, and the continuing courage and resilience of its people, starting with women. From Berkeley, Boston, Claremont, Detroit, Los Angeles, Miami, Oakland, San Francisco, Santa Cruz and Springfield (USA), Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto and Windsor (Canada), Guyana and elsewhere, to Dublin and London, people have gathered in solidarity with the Haitian people. Actions in Haiti and across the world marked the 10th anniversary of the coup (29 February 2004) which overthrew the government of Jean-Bertrand Aristide -- former liberation theology priest and Haiti's first democratically elected and much loved and trusted President. Also on this the first anniversary of the death of Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez, we were remembering this extraordinary leader of the Bolivarian Revolution which changed Latin America and the world.
