womens-marchWASHINGTON (AP) — Police in Washington said Thursday that they have issued a permit for the Women’s March on Washington, a demonstration planned for the day after the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump.

The Metropolitan Police Department said it has issued a permit for the Jan. 21 march to start near the U.S. Capitol. Organizers have said they will march down Independence Avenue, and police said the march is scheduled to disperse at Constitution Avenue near the Washington Monument. But Cassady Fendlay, a spokeswoman for the march, said the route is not finalized, nor is the location where it will end.

Police said that on their application, march organizers estimated 200,000 participants.

Organizers initially hoped to rally at the Lincoln Memorial and other spaces, but those plans conflicted with other groups and inauguration events.

The Washington Post  reported that Janaye Ingram, the head of logistics for the Women’s March on Washington, said last week that the group still has a pending application for a permit for various locations that, like the Lincoln Memorial, are under the purview of the National Park Service. Ingram said the group has not rescinded its application but is no longer interested in rallying in front of the Lincoln Memorial.

A National Park Service list of permit requests shows the group was also interested in space at the Washington Monument. About 20 groups have applied for permits to demonstrate on National Park Service land on or around the Jan. 20 inauguration date.

National Park Service spokesman Mike Litterst said the agency is waiting for the Presidential Inaugural Committee, which has priority, to make decisions about what space it will use before issuing permits for certain locations.

  1. what will this accomplish? it is just a waste of time you will go home with TRUMP as your president still at the end of the day, these are unwise women if you follow them you too are unwise.

  2. Is this how “white” women intend to make up for not supporting Clinton? Too little too late. And don’t think I don’t hold Clinton responsible for NOT promoting African Americans who were on her campaign team. This constant Democratic MO of getting blacks to vote for them but not doing much for US needs to change. She did not give black women enough reason to support her. I’m bored with marches i’m a WHATCHA GONNA DO kinda girl now this ain’t sh——

  3. I wish millions of women would show up to protest Trump’s presidency. Yes he is the President Elect, and I’m not saying women should show up bc of sour grapes….but because the man isn’t worthy of being president. He’s a narcissist, it appears he was willing to say anything in order to get elected, Trump Univ appears to be a fraud, (all) of the women that have accused him of mis-conduct aren’t lying (after all he’s on tape saying what he would do to women’s private parts). I could on, and on…….but you get my drift
