Beyoncé stöttar “Women’s March on Washington” på lördag – mot rasism, kvinnoförakt och intolerans



I samband med att Donald Trump ska sväras in som USA:s president under veckoslutet planeras en lång rad demonstrationer från olika initiativtagare som vill skicka en signal till de blivande makthavarna. I samband med marschen i Washington D.C på lördag kommer även Janelle Monae, Maxwell, Angelique Kidjo med flera uppträda .Beyoncé meddelade inatt att hon ställer på upp manifestationen och skriver i sociala medier:


“We raise our voices as mothers, as artists, and as activists. As #GlobalCitizens, we can make our voices heard and turn awareness into meaningful action and positive change.”



Initiativtagarna bakom marschen skickar ett tydligt budskap till Trump & Co genom att tydliggöra sin vision:


“The rhetoric of the past election cycle has insulted, demonized, and threatened many of us – immigrants of all statuses, Muslims and those of diverse religious faiths, people who identify as LGBTQIA, Native people, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities, survivors of sexual assault – and our communities are hurting and scared. We are confronted with the question of how to move forward in the face of national and international concern and fear.

In the spirit of democracy and honoring 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. The Women’s March on Washington will send a bold message to our new government on their first day in office, and to the world that women’s rights are human rights. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.”
