Thousands of women are marching in protest against Donald Trump’s presidency in cities across the UK, and around the world.
The London march began at the American Embassy in Grosvenor Square, taking in Park Lane, Piccadilly and Pall Mall before concluding with a rally in Trafalgar Square.
Walking along Piccadilly, the marchers chanted: “Build bridges not walls.”
Slogans on placards included “dump Trump”, “reject hate, reclaim politics” and “no to racism, no to Trump”.
Women’s March London tweeted: “Incredible turn out! We’ve taken the London streets.”
Organisers said 80,000 people had taken part.
One protester, 32-year-old Kim McInally, held a sign saying: “My p**** is not up for grabs.”
“Yesterday was seen as the official start of fascism coming back,” she said.
“Human rights and human equality is getting pushed further and further down the list.”.. see more
