Protests in Dublin and Galway are now said to be over
Hundreds of protesters gathered earlier today in Dublin and Galway in solidarity with those protesting in Washington over the recent inauguration of President Donald Trump.
The march in Dublin started at 12:30 today beginning at the Garden of Remembrance and ended up with a rally at the G.P.O. at around 1:30pm.
Some of the organisations who supported today's marches include Abortions Rights Campaign, Amnesty Intentional Ireland, Coalition to Repeal the 8th, Democrats Abroad, European Network Against Racism and R.O.S.A.
Thousands have marched on Washington today as they aim to send a message to the new US President that women’s rights need defending - and challenge the “hateful rhetoric” of the incoming president.
In a statement organisers said "In the spirit of democracy and honouring the champions of human rights, dignity, and justice who have come before us, we join in diversity to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore."
Thanks for standing, speaking & marching for our values @womensmarch. Important as ever. I truly believe we're always Stronger Together.— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) January 21, 2017
Protesters have also gathered in a number of different places around the world such as London, Edinburgh, Liverpool and Paris.
