Brussels Join march against hatred and division

This Saturday, the first day of Donald Trump's presidency, women-led marches and rallies, welcoming all participants of whatever gender, age or background, will take place across the world.

We're proud to be supporting the Belfast Women's March event, a short rally at Belfast City Hall at 3pm, and we'd love your readers join us to stand together against the politics of fear and division.

With political turmoil at home and abroad, we have joined with other activists to stand together for the protection of our fundamental rights and freedoms.

This rally is part of a worldwide movement in reaction to rhetoric that has insulted, demonised and threatened many people, including women, immigrants, those of diverse religious faiths, people who identify as LGBT, people with disabilities and sexual assault survivors.

The politics of fear and division have no place in 2017. This Saturday, I'll be standing with my neighbours, near and far, and raising my voice alongside many others.
