Protest

I went to a protest at RDU today.

It was fine. Just...strange. We waved signs. We chanted. We admired each other's signs. We massively exceeded the numbers they expected to show up and the protest was eventually dispersed.

"There's one planned for April 15th," people told me. And I thought "It's not even February. It's been a WEEK. April is a thousand years away. I don't believe this can last until April 15th. I don't know if I believe it'll last until March."

We live in very, very strange times, and they are happening faster than I ever thought possible.

Lots of us over here in the U.K. are cheering you on.
There's a petition on the UK government website asking that Donald Trump not be invited over here on a State Visit. It had 100,000 signatures when I came across it yesterday morning - it's now up to over 1,500,000 and still going strong.

(Only open to U.K. Residents and British citizens, unfortunately).
We have your back.
