On January 20th, I took part in the solidarity march movement that’s taking place around the world. Women’s March Tokyo was the first one in that movement. We came together to support each other, as well as stand up for the rights of women, LGQTQA+ persons, immigrants, blacks, and many more.
Of course, I wasn’t the only one there. A few others recorded the historic event as well (and did it better than me). Please check these videos out!
This one is by Ronin Dave, which features interviews with attendees.
And the final video is by noxxx710. This actually features more of the front group that was too far ahead in my video to get footage of, so there’s that. You can see the Democrats of Japan leaders and organizers in there.
The turn out was nearly twice as much as expected, which was amazing! I was very proud to be there.
Note: NOT A PROTEST, this was a march in solidarity with the people scared of what it means to have Trump as a President. We wanted to raise our voices, show that we will hold him accountable for what he said and what he will do for the next four years.
