Here is Michael Moore's AMAZING speech at the Women's March in DC. Not only does he speak out against Trump and the policies he wants to inforce, he tells you how we can accomplish our goals to make America the best it can be.
Women and men across the world are fighting for not only their rights, but for other's who can't speak up. Abortion, LGBTQIA+ and women rights, Planned Parenthood and other healthcare issues, racism, President Trump and Vice President Pence's appointing unqualified people into office, immigration reform, and climate change are some of Women's March focal points.
Scarlett Johansson speaks out about the great womencare she received from Planned Parenthood. How she was given help, when she had no other means to help her as a poor independent 15 year old. Through Planned Parenthood,her and her friends had their lives saved.
Trump tweets this out
"Watched protests yesterday but was under the impression that we just had an election! Why didn't these people vote? Celebs hurt cause badly."
Peaceful protests are a hallmark of our democracy. Even if I don't always agree, I recognize the rights of people to express their views.
Why should we listen to a president who tweets a petty response, instead of addressing the distressed nation. Why should we listen to a president who sees the outraged men and women as ignorant people, unwilling to listen to the demand for equality. Who insteads supports the men and women who will run our country into the ground.
Here America Ferrera is a first generation American, speaking out against Donald Trump and his reckless and irresponsible actions he will put in place as president, his racism and disregard towards fellow humans. She speaks up for her fellow humans, asking us to do one simple task. STAND UNITED. Don't fall apart into separate causes, because we all have one goal after these four years. We will fight for the common decency of all humans, and the greater good, and justice for all.
