One year later.
This afternoon in Columbia somewhere close to two thousand people (the organizers’ head count was over 1600) gathered at the amphitheater in the Courthouse Square in Columbia, Missouri for a rally and march to commemorate last year’s Women’s March and to protest Donald Trump, his administration, and his republican enablers.
After live music (quite good) and a few speeches the crowd marched through downtown Columbia with a significant police escort. Intersections were shut down with several police vehicles and officers blocking traffic. On Walnut (a main drag) a heavy plow truck was positioned to block the intersection.
Individuals came out of downtown shops and others leaned out of second story apartment windows to take photos with their smart phones. A few passersby joined the march, matching pace to join the stream of people.
