On January 21st Dublin women’s rights activists will join the rest of the world in The Women’s March on Washington- Dublin just a day after the United States president elect Donald Trump begins his term as President of the United States. 

The protest will begin at 12:00pm at The Garden of Remembrance Parnell Square East, Dublin 1, Ireland and will march to O’Connell Street to D’Olier Street, back down Westmoreland and O’Connell to the GPO. The rally will follow in front of the spire.

Women’s March on Washington- Dublin promises that, “We will use no violence (physical or verbal) towards any person. We will not damage or destroy property. We will promote a tone of respect, honest, transparency, and accountability in our actions. We will not carry anything that can be constructed as a weapon, nor possess (or consume) any alcohol or drugs. We are non- partisan, and will use the Women’s March primarily to express our support for women’s rights and human rights in our communities and the country, rather than to criticize politicians or political parties. We will all hold each other accountable to respecting these agreements,” Women’s Rights on Washington- Dublin said.

The organisers of the march in Washington D.C. said, “The Women’s March on Washington aims to send a message to all levels of government, including but not limited to the incoming presidential administration, that we stand together in solidarity and we expect elected leaders to act to protect the rights of women, their families and their communities.” Read more on BreakingNews.ie.
