Inaugural protests kick off the resistance

The Inauguration of Donald J Trump as President of the United States on January 20, 2017 inspired a wealth of action in Washington D.C. Though many came to witness the Inauguration itself, protesters were out in droves, attending various approved events and marches. While some unapproved, more violent forms of protest took place, planned events saw themselves as staging day one of a larger resistance.

The Festival of Resistance in particular began at noon near Union Station and marched to McPherson Square, merging there with various other protest groups. A uniquely artistic band of marchers preached inclusivity and equality, equipped with paper mache horse/old woman masks, a boat made of banners, stilts, flags, and a mini marching band.
