Building a Dream: The 2019 San Francisco Women’s March

“Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable….
Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice,
suffering and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate
concern of dedicated individuals.” Martin Luther King Jr.

Some shots of San Francisco’s 2019 Women’s March:  the tone
was hopeful, angry, and determined.

This year we remember that most of the civilized world said yes
to Dr. Kings Dream.

The NATO Alliance promotes global human rights.

Dr. King’s Dream is a global movement.

Democracies will continue to build a more just, integrated and
inclusive global civilization.

We will continue to fight poverty, abuse, and discrimination.

We will not go back.

The Women’s March, 2019: A Global Wave

I’m excited about this Saturday’s Women’s March in San Francisco and San Jose.

Women’s March 2019

We had a #BlueWave in 2018 but it began the day after Trump’s inauguration.

On January 19, 2019, Women’s March Bay Area will unite in San Jose and San Francisco to reaffirm our commitment to building a positive and just future for all, and to celebrate the spirit of resistance efforts over the past year.

San Francisco Women’s March

The movement that began in 2017 is now a global demand for governments based on  human rights, the Rule of Law and Democratic Systems.

Americans won a battle in 2018 but we haven’t won the war and Putin’s weaponized trolls will work non-stop to divide us.

The wave must continue:

The Women’s March is a national movement to unify and empower everyone who stands for human rights, civil liberties, and social justice for all. We stand together in solidarity for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families — recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country.  The Women’s March

A personal note: I’ve been ill and have a post in the works to explain what happened: I will slowly catch up on comments and blog visits.

I am NOT affiliated with the National Organization or Global Women’s March.

Rob’s Weekly News Wrap Up: 12/28-01/04

This week saw the culmination of two years of #Resistance as Democrats took control of the House of Representatives after a Historic #BlueWave in November.

On January 3, Nancy Pelosi became the Speaker of the House for the Second Time.

This time Nancy Pelosi leads of majority of younger, more aggressive democrats.

This wrap up doesn’t cover everything.

Let Freedom Ring: Two Years of #Resistance

This video is a mix of clips from the 2017 Women’s March, the 2018 Women’s March 2018, the March for Science  the March for Climate Change,  the Tax march and Pride 2017 and 2018.

The cuts from the 2017 Women’s March on Washington are from Rand Hall posted to the Internet Archive.

The rest of the videos are mine and made in San Francisco.

This is a re-post with a video update.

The previous video didn’t work for me.

This one looks the same but it’s sharper and better paced.

The header images are scans of the poster handouts at the 2017 Women’s
March on Washington.

To the best of my knowledge the posters are in the public domain, I sharpened the colors but I did not make the posters.

I cropped a mix of Spiritual High by Moodswings and the ‘I have a Dream’ speech by Martin Luther King. I found the mix at the Internet Archives.

Thank you to the talented Democrats who took charge of the House of Representatives.

Look at what we can accomplish when we unite.
