women's march  
Thanks on behalf of the world to everyone who went to these marches! They were such a huge signal of hope to us all.

I often get dishartened when I see women not standing up for themselves, yesterday we (and especially the US women) stood. So many of women, so many who hate crowds and never have been to a protest before went out and made themselves heard. Makes me proud and hopeful.

I hope we can find a way to channel this unifying protests into a movement to oppose the rise of fascism around the globe.

I hope so too.

I find it reassuring that there is at least that other half, more than half really, that does not buy into the crazy and that will not give in.

The problem is, that I do not knpw what will make the other half loose faith in their Führers.

Last time in Austria in 2006, sheer and glaring incompetence did the trick, but I doubt it will be that easy this time. Postfactual age and all that.

I was proud of the women, men, and children who marched as well.

Me too, I hope this translate into a political movement that curbs his power in 2018.
