Women’s March, York

Gathering at 11:50am on Saturday 21 January by St Michael le Belfrey, High Petergate (outside Monster in the city centre). The route is about twenty minutes to half an hour, though with speakers at key points during the march, it should last for about an hour.

On the first day of Donald Trump’s Presidency in the USA, women-led marches will take place across the world – the largest of which is expected to be in Washington DC. We call on people of all genders to march in York as part of an international day of action in solidarity. We will march for the protection of our fundamental rights and for the safeguarding of freedoms threatened by recent political events. We unite and stand together for the dignity and equality of all peoples, for the safety and health of our planet and for the strength of our vibrant and diverse communities. We will come together in the spirit of democracy, honouring the champions of human rights who have gone before us. Please spread the word, so that our numbers are too great to ignore and the message to the world is clear. The politics of fear and division have no place in 2017. All are welcome – this is a public and inclusive event.
