Last Sunday millions of people worldwide took to the streets to send a message. The election of Donald Trump provoked an outpouring of emotions, much of it expressed in sign language.
I was with half a million marchers in Washington, DC. A turnout much larger than the inauguration that preceded it, and focused on a President who believes in “alternative facts”. Anger mixed with the joy of a shared vision for a more inclusive and “kinder”country.
A number of signs reflected the concerns of environmentalist Bill McKibben: “It’s clear that we’re about to witness the steady demolition, or attempted demolition, of the environmental protections that have been put in place over the past five decades.”
This is only the beginning.
