Not My President's Day Rally



Maybe you heard about the Not My President's Day rallies held yesterday in cities all across the United States. Here in D.C., ours started at Dupont Circle. You can see some folks in the photo below arriving. Looks like they may have taken one of the Red Line trains and emerged from the Dupont Circle station. 

"The park within the circle is maintained by the National Park Service. The central fountain designed by Daniel Chester French provides seating, and long, curved benches around the central area were installed in 1964. The park within the circle is a gathering place for those wishing to play chess on the permanent stone chessboards. Tom Murphy, a homeless championship chess player, is a resident. The park has also been the location of political rallies, such as those supporting gay rights and those protesting the 2003 invasion of Iraq, the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund." ~ Wikipedia

  1. Hope someone tells that president what's happening, I think he lives in his own (crazy) world...

  3. A nice city street scene. A good gathering place to start a protest. I wonder if he cares, probably not. SAD!

  5. This park has quite a protest history RR, it seems only right that this equally important protest be held here. Hope we see some images from the day.
