Women’s March Plans Nationwide Strike Against the Chumph

If the protesters can pull this one off, it has the ability to break the Chumph and the Republican’s illegitimate government.

If they get 10 Million to participate it is a maot slap in the face to the Chumph. But, what happens if they get 20, 30, 40, or 50 Million?

You get 50 million protesting and it’s the end of not only the illegitimate Chumph…But any possible mandate or legitimacy of the Republican majority Congress.

“A day without women”: Women’s March group announces plan to hold a general strike

The Trump administration is on notice that a strike of unprecedented proportion is coming

The group that organized the Women’s March on inaugural weekend is calling for a mass strike in opposition of President Trump.

In social media posts, the group announced a strike on a date yet to be determined and provided no other details.

On the day after Trump’s inauguration, more than three million Americans nationwide took to the streets to demonstrate their dissent against the new president. Washington, D.C., the epicenter of the Women’s March, drew around 500,000 protesters, a turn out so large that it engulfed the entire march route.

On the official website of the Women’s March, a note thanks the millions of people from “around the world” who showed solidarity that day.

“Thank you to the millions of people around the world who, on January 21, came together to raise our voices,” the website said. “But our march forward does not end here. Now is the time to get friends, family and community together and make history.”

The announcement on Monday of an upcoming general strike reveals the next big plan the group has in store for the Trump administration. A strike of a national scale would be unprecedented in modern U.S. history. Last year, in India, public sector workers went on a 24-hour nation-wide general strike against the government’s economic policies.

People on social media seemed receptive to the idea of a nationwide strike.

March Against the Chumph!

Trump Coronation crowd

The crowd protesting the Chumph just in DC is now over 600,000, and possibly could be 800,000!

2,500,000 to 5 million people marched today in over 600 cities in the US and around the world to reject the Chumph’s illegitimate presidency.

Metro reported 470,000 came by the Subway.

More than 470,000 people had taken Metro by 1 p.m., a weekend ridership record. (By 11 a.m. on Inauguration Day, 193,000 trips had been taken.)

The City has about 3,000 parking spaces for buses, including those in close in Northern Virginia (You can walk across the bridges).

A month ago, city officials said they were expecting around 1,500 buses. But as of Tuesday, just 435 charter buses have permits to park on Friday (Inauguration), about half of them in the sea of asphalt around RFK Stadium and the other half in lots and spaces around the city (Only about 250 actually showed up), according to the District’s Department of Transportation. At least a dozen of them are coming to shuttle people to protests organized by DisruptJ20, the ANSWER Coalition, and other groups.

Meanwhile, on Saturday, there a total of 2,066 buses registered to bring rally-goers for the Women’s March on Washington, according to figures collected by DDOT. EventsDC, which is handling permits at RFK for the day, said they filled all 1,200 spots available at the stadium by last Tuesday. WMATA, U Street Parking, and other private companies are also providing parking elsewhere in and around the city.

Predicting crowd sizes is a deeply imperfect science, but buses offer one of the few concrete measurements to gauge participation.

For President Barack Obama’s record-breaking first inauguration, more than 3,000 chartered buses were registered and officials estimated attendance at around 1.8 million people.

At 50 per bus, that means an additional 103,000.

There is no count of the number of people who came in on the “Chinatown” buses which normally operate hourly between DC and NYC, Phila, Boston, Richmond, and Atlanta.

Greyhound is reportedly sold out

Many came in on the Amtrak train Union Station, which is a block from the Capitol Building. Amtrak reported being sold out today.

So the numbers look like 600,000 to 800,000 in DC

Wow!

10 Times More People to Protest the Chumph Today Than At The ‘coronation”

Looking at the number of bus parking permits applied for (1200), and the hour long waits to get on the suburban DC METRO Subway stations to get into the city…The crowd is shaping up to be 500,000 – 600,000 so far. Two to tree times larger than the Chumph supporter crowd at the coronation yesterday. Metro has not published fare data yet and won’t until tomorrow, but looking at public information on the wait times at various stations indicates this may well be a huge crowd. It is shaping up to be much bigger than the 200,000 forecast.

With protests around the world in other cities, the anticipated number of protesters could well be above 2 million – over 10 times the inauguration’s pitiful crowd.

Crowds protesting the coronation of the illegitimate Trump presidency could exceed 5 million. There are actually over 300 Groups protesting today…Just in DC.

This is one of the Metro Stations – Shady Grove. This tunnel goes under the highway and into the Station at the top right. An 8 car consist Metro Train can carry 200 passengers per car – or 1600 per train. On a maximum run done for major events – there is a train every 2 minutes (actually 28 in each direction per hour). An hour’s wait means there are @ 48,000 people in front of you. There are about 50 Suburban Stations. In a situation like this, it would not be unusual for the trains to skip the stations further out so that the closer in station’s passenger get service.

Enormous Crowds Expected at Women’s Marches Around the World

From Washington, DC, to Riyadh, more than 2 million women are set to protest the inauguration of President Donald Trump.

On Saturday, January 21, more than 200,000 women are expected to march in Washington, DC, to protest the inauguration of Donald Trump. The organizerspredict that they’ll be joined by more than 2 million women in more than 600 marches worldwide. Want to find a march near you? Use this tool.
