Washington, January 22 (RHC)-- Millions of protesters turned out for the second day of the Women's March, a nationwide series of protests against U.S. President Donald Trump marking the end of his tumultuous first year in office.
The Sunday rallies in New York, Las Vegas, Washington, Los Angeles, Chicago and about 250 other cities, including Park City in Utah that was host to the Sundance Film Festival, marked the anniversary of President Trump’s inauguration and last year's massive Women's March.
Speakers at the events blasted Donald Trump for policies they say hurt women urging voters to turn out for congressional elections in November to secure progressive seats in the midterm elections. Sister rallies were staged in cities overseas.
New York Mayor Bill De Blasio cited 200,000 as the city’s official number of participants in a tweet on Sunday morning. He told reporters: “It was the one year anniversary of one of the greatest protests in American history, and it was a promise to keep the fight going.”
