The D.C. march drew an approximate half million marchers who were joined by marchers all over the country and the world. At least 3 million participated in more than 600 protests.
In Chicago 250,000 marchers — five times more than expected — turned out at Bryant Park and Grant Park and overflowed into the downtown. The Chicago cast of the musical “Hamilton” sang.
Marchers turned up in Seattle, New York, Los Angeles, London, Paris, Australia, Barcelona, and Berlin — and Atlanta, Ga., led by U.S. Rep. John Lewis.
Protests also were held in St. Louis and Kansas City, Springfield, Mo., and Willow Springs, Mo.
Some of those who showed up at the D.C. march included feminist Gloria Steinem, movie maker Michael Moore, former Secretary of State John Kerry, and Trayvon Martin’s mother. Many of the women wore pink hats known as “pussy hats.”
D.C. Police said no arrests were made during Saturday’s protests. Some D.C. police were observed wearing “pussy hats” Saturday.
In Berlin they said “We in Berlin know that walls don’t work.”
Singers Madonna and Alicia Keys were also at the D.C. March.
U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren spoke at the Boston protest, where more than 150,000 were present.
