The Powell River march follows up on the International women’s marches for women’s rights as human rights, that started January 21, 2017, with women wearing pink ‘pussy’ hats as a strong response to Trump’s ill-considered and problematic remark(s) about women. This year women are 'marching on' worldwide on January 20th, in support of the MeToo and Time’sUp campaigns.
The plan is to gather at 10am on January 20th outside Base Camp Café and make placards and signs while energized by the Powell River Women’s Punk Rock Choir. When ready, we’ll march down Marine to the corner of Willingdon/Alberni, where we’ll form a circle, sing and talk and support each other, then we’ll return to Base Camp by around 11am. Weather will not stand in our way (I hope).
Please bring signs that mean something to you, or materials to make them that morning. Lots of poster board, markers and sticks will be available for your use as well.
