What do the protesters want?

January 19th, 2017 by Ken

Thousands of American are gathering in Washington DC today to protest the presidency of Donald Trump.  I’ve wondered for a long time what they really want.   Do they want Trump to resign?  Do they want him to be impeached?  Do they want him to die in office?   I haven’t really been certain what they want to accomplish.

And then, I read the Facebook page of Kelsey Hulse, who is currently in Washington DC to protest and make her voice heard.   Kelsey thinks there’s a media blackout on protests but has made her views known through social media.

Kelsey said she is protesting because misogyny  and racism will not be tolerated or excused.   Women rights and immigrant rights are human rights, she said.

“I’m here because I believe the role of government is to work for accessibility, equity, opportunity and justice for all.” she said in her Facebook post.

Kelsey was the Democratic candidate for Thurston County commissioner in November.   She lost to independent candidate Gary Edwards.
