A report is here.
This photo shows anti-Trump demonstrators in Rome, Italy, today.
There will be at least 616 ‘sister marches’ to that event all over the world. Like in London, England. And in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. And in The Hague, the Netherlands (march from the Malieveld to the US embassy). And in Aruba in the Caribbean.
And, like there was a demonstration in Antarctica in 2003 on the same day millions of others demonstrated all over the world against George W Bush’s plans to invade Iraq, there will be a demonstration against Donald Trump in the Antarctic tomorrow.

We are an international group of eco-minded visitors on an expedition ship to Antarctica.
We will be “marching” on our ship, off the coast of the Antarctic Peninsula on January 21, location still unknown. Unfortunately due to this constraint, we can’t invite the public, but welcome all ship-board guests and staff to join us.
We welcome signs and hats. Ideas:
“Women for Earth”
Due to the environmental sensitivity of the area, we can’t leave any marks, trampled messages, etc.
There will not only be anti-Donald Trump demonstrations on the day of his inauguration, 20 January, in Washington, DC, elsewhere in the USA, and, eg, in Amsterdam, the Netherlands; and in London, England.

Sometimes they were raped 20 times a day, 200 thousand Korean “comfort women” who were brought to Japan between 1910 and 1945 to sexually serve soldiers. This statue in Busan symbolizes the drama. But as [the governments of] South Korea and Japan want to bury the hatchet, the government threatens to dismantle the statue. Hans Aarsman about the protest which that decision causes.

Comfort Women Survivors Protest Against Japanese Prime Minister’s Visit
12 January 2017
Some surviving comfort women in the Philippines rallied on Thursday to protest against the Japanese prime minister’s visit to the country, asking for apology and compensation for the crimes the Japanese invaders committed against humanity during World War II.
From daily The Morning Star in Britain:
Friday 13th January 2017
Left-wing umbrella group Bayan, which is among the organisations supporting the “comfort women,” said Mr Abe’s trip was not a mere “social visit.”
Comfort women and girls were forced into sexual slavery by the Imperial Japanese Army in occupied territories before and during the second world war.
Bayan said: “The visit of the Japanese PM is another step to slowly establish its military presence” through regular naval port calls and joint military exercises with US forces.
“Japan wants to flex its military muscle in the region as a junior partner of the US. It has passed security legislation that goes against the spirit of its peace constitution.”

Translated from Dutch NOS TV:
Soldiers sick of discrimination and sexism
Thirteen (former) soldiers have complained to the Ministry of Defence because they suffer from discriminatory or sexist remarks. This confirms lawyer Michael Ruperti in response to an article in the Algemeen Dagblad daily.
In the newspaper, eg, an Antillean soldier complains that he was told that he “should go back to the monkey rock”. A female soldier was told that she was a “tampon“, and was called a “first aid kit cunt” as she had to keep her mouth shut.
Ruperti speaks of more than 32 cases, and also today still people with stories about the culture in the armed forces are reporting. Some immigrant soldiers according to him have already asked themselves for a transfer because they are sick of the discriminatory harassment. …
In 2006 there already was research on discrimination in the military. It showed that many Dutch soldiers were against immigrants. According to Ruperti, little appears to have changed in ten years.
