Young People’s Resistance Committee joins Milwaukee’s Women’s March
Milwaukee, WI – On Jan 20, the Young People’s Resistance Committee (YPRC) attended Milwaukee’s Women’s March. Around 20,000 people were in attendance to counter the Trump administration’s continuous attacks on women, queer people and other oppressed communities.
YPRC asked the attendees to acknowledge the struggle of Palestinian women resisting the violent military occupation by Israeli forces, saying, “If you stand with #MeToo, you must also fight for a free Palestine.”
Milwaukee’s 2018 Women’s March proved that women are aware of their oppression and are ready to mobilize around it. This is only the latest example of Milwaukee’s willingness and ability to fight back against the dangerous sexist and racist attacks of this administration, with more struggle and unity to come as 2018 advances.
