    Issue: Environmental and Social Justice
    Program Topic: Inauguration Demonstrations In DC: Disrupt J20 and Women’s March

    Key Discussion Points:
    1) Today’s hour long edition covers the inauguration demonstrations in DC this past weekend, both the Disrupt J 20 on the day of the inauguration of Donald Trump and the historic Women’s’ March, which flooded the city with over a half a million people the day after.
    2)Demonstrations on the day of the inauguration, were reportedly the largest in US history. We hear from march participants in the Disrupt J 20 Festival of Resistance march and speakers from the rally that followed, addressing a wide range of issues that will intensify under the Trump Administration.
    3) We also hear from participants from the Women’s March on January 21st in DC. The Trump inauguration team had blocked the Women’s March from getting a permit for the Mall, but the reportedly half a million people overwhelmed the permitted site on Independence Ave. Rather then stay on the march route, people streamed across the city, taking over streets in spontaneous, giant, leaderless marches towards the Mall and as close to the White House that barricades would allow.

    What will the recent change in administrations in Washington mean for our everyday digital lives? It’s too early to tell for sure but some indications are available from the first few days of the new administration, and not everyone will be pleased with what they portend.
