Prague Solidarity Rally with the Women's March on Washington


Prague Solidarity Rally with the Women's March on Washington

21. 1. 2017

The Assembly will be held on January 21 from 12.00 to 14.00 on Wenceslas Square at the Horse.

An official sister rally to the Women’s March on Washington, LOVE TRUMPS HATE is a statement of shared values, delivered to our leaders in the United States and the Czech Republic, across Europe, and beyond.

This rally is a step towards unifying our communities to create real, grassroots change, in support of the work of journalists and the free press, of environmental activists and their concern for our imperiled planet, and of the peaceable relationships between nations. We will demonstrate peacefully and from a diversity of political vantage points, recognizing that there is no true peace without justice and equality for all.

One of over 270 sister events of the Women’s March on Washington, the Love Trumps Hate rally will take place on President Donald J. Trump’s first day in office. We expect over 1 million marchers across the globe to take part at demonstrations in all 50 US states, as well as in 55 global cities on six continents, from Tokyo to Sydney, Nairobi to Paris, Bogotá to Prague.
