Thousands flooded Boston Common last Saturday, adorning pink hats, hand made signs, and chanting ‘This is what democracy looks like.” Boston, a relatively small city, saw one of the largest turn outs for the Women’s March for America with an estimated 175,000 people joining in on the march, about one fourth of the entire city’s population. Although the march was scheduled to begin at 11 a.m., crowds began to form about two hours before.
Boston brought all the heavy hitters outs. Mayor Marty Walsh gave a passionate speech in support, seemingly loosing his breath and voice towards the end. Elizabeth Warren, one of Trumps harshest critics and most popular politicians in the Commonwealth, riled up the crowd, reiterating her determination on protecting the rights of every citizen in the United States. When Attorney General Maura Healey got to the podium and began to speak, she reassured the crowd that if President Trump ever infringes on human rights, Massachusetts will hold him accountable. With one of the most memorable quotes of the days, “Mr. Trump, we will see you in court!” Healey stole the show.
The stars of the day however, were the people of the commonwealth and their signs. Check out some of the best signs to come out of the 2017 Boston’s Women’s March for America.
