The thing about marches and rallies and activism are that they are good for the soul. It’s a form of fellowship, not unlike the feeling I had back in my church-going days. It’s nice to know you’re not alone, in the resistance, and for me nothing replaces the solidarity of in-person activism. And in Santa Cruz on Saturday, it was packed — nearly 20,000 marched, in the main drag, downtown.
My Favorite Chant:
We need a leader, not a creepy Tweeter!
My Favorite Sign:
Grab Them By The Midterms
Note on the signs: there were soooo many signs. There usually are at marches and political rallies, but even so, this rally seemed sign-heavy. Many of the signs were creative, and for those of you who belong to the grammar police, all of the signs I saw were spelled correctly 😉
And lastly, a little video footage from the tail end of the march:
