TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – Thousands of activists rallied in the streets of Chicago on Saturday to protest against the Trump administration's anti-women agenda and to support the Democratic party ahead of the November midterm elections.
A giant “Baby Trump” flew over the crowd. Trump was depicted as “El Diablo” on a high-flying flag. Demonstrators waved “Vote Blue” banners – the message was unmistakable.
Angered by the bitter fight over new US Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and what they called the “anti-woman agenda” of the Trump administration and the Republican Party, women – and men – rallied in the Windy City, EWN reported.
The “March to the Polls” event – which began in Grant Park and was to wrap up downtown – came just as voter registration deadlines neared in most states and early voting ramped up in more than a dozen states including Illinois.
The event was organized as a continuation of the Women's March movement, which has seen repeated protests internationally and across the United States with the aim of demonstrating opposition to the allegedly anti-women policies and positions of both the Republican party and US President Donald Trump.
