Revolutions are the only political events which confront us directly and inevitably with the problem of beginning. Hannah Arendt, On Revolution

The Women's March in Trafalgar Square on January 21st gathered almost 100 thousand Londoners joined in a world-wide movement including 673 sister Marches on Washington. Having gone beyond the protest against one single person, President Donald Trump, the march is proof of the collective awareness and burning desire to not forget, nor forgive – injustice, abuse, or inequality. It was a march of the vigilant and the brave, moving like one against the dehumanising values that taint our societies and impair our progress. It was a march of the powerful.

It was in peace and in empowering celebration of diversity that the protesters chose to speak for those silenced and harmed, for the disenfranchised and the beautiful others, remembering the work done in the past that needs to be protected and developed: Black Lives Matter, Bridges not Walls, 50:50 Parliament, and LGBT movements inspired messages proving that the Women’s March is a powerful bond of humanity. “Boys for girls,” “Raised by a shy young man,” “I am a citizen of the world,” “We need good role models” were just a few of the slogans held up with pride and hope, in an outstanding reclaiming of language from deceivers and demagogues.
