Sisters Kelley Jeong and Kristine Byers marched alongside over 1,000 participants at the 2019 March on Vancouver on Saturday, January 19, 2019. The march first began two years ago in response to Donald Trump’s inauguration. This year people marched not only in support of their southern sisters, but also in reflection of the struggles we continue to face here in Canada.
“Speakers opened the rally by discussing intersectional issues ranging from the environment to Indigenous rights to violence against women of different backgrounds and abilities. An hour later, the march’s more than 1,000 attendees poured into the streets of downtown Vancouver. Ahead of the sea of people, the Daughters of the Drum – a Vancouver-based collective of primarily Aboriginal women drummers, singers and musicians – led the way toward Robson Square Law Courts.” (From this article by The Ubyssey, where you can read the full story: https://www.ubyssey.ca/news/women-march-2019/?fbclid=IwAR0pvurwXB9kbByQgheoPxldtV_pTkNfp858RQWjqQCnnc4EJmmNVSfxlYs).
