LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Los Angeles was one of the several cities nationwide that took part in a Women’s March Saturday.
The demonstrations focused on the Trump Administration’s anti-abortion stance and efforts to replace the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who was a champion in the women’s rights movement.
“We don’t want this kind of future for anybody and this is why we’re counting on people voting on November 3 and getting out into the streets now,” said Michelle Xai, a Refuse Fascism LA Organizer.
Hundreds of participants – many of whom were wearing face coverings – marched from Pershing Square to Los Angeles City Hall.
Signs such as “We will not be silenced,” “Trump/Pence out now,” “History is watching” and “For our future” were on display.
Marchers were also chanting, “Women’s rights are human rights,” and “No justice, no peace.”
Similar marches and rallies were planned throughout other areas of the Southland, including Pasadena, Long Beach, Torrance and Laguna Niguel.
