(Before It's News)

More than 250 people gathered here on March 8, International Women’s Day, to oppose Trump’s attacks on women. After rallying in Mayday Plaza, in the West Bank neighborhood, protesters marched on the headquarters of the Minnesota Republican Party.

The demonstration was organized by Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO), and endorsed by the Welfare Rights Committee, MIRAC-No More Deportations Campaign, Anti-War Committee, MIRAC-UMN, Women Against Military Madness, Students for a Democratic Society – UMN, MN Committee to Stop FBI Repression, and others.

Jess Sundin, of FRSO told the crowd, “Despite this day being born out of the struggle of immigrant working women right here in this country, until this year, most people didn’t even know that International Women’s Day was a thing. But today, in some 30 countries, millions of women, including trans women and all gender non-conforming folks, are taking actions for women's freedom and dignity. Today, this day, is important. But it’s not just about one day, March 8, but about building a movement that can change the world we live in.”
