While thousands will gather in the Nation’s capital to see Donald Trump inaugurated as president, many more – including Watertown residents – will be in Washington to protest the incoming president’s policies and campaign promises.
Two buses heading to D.C. have been booked up, and a third may be organized. The trip is being organized by Watertown Citizens for Peace, Justice and the Environment.
The buses leave the municipal parking lot in Watertown Square at 11 p.m. Friday and will be in Washington for Saturday’s Women’s March on Washington, before heading back north.
Those interested in getting on the third bus should contact Watertown Citizens at firstname.lastname@example.org. Roundtrip tickets cost $125, and must be paid by the evening of Wednesday, Jan. 18.
Not everyone interested in the Women’s March will be able to get to Washington, but a march is planned for Boston, too.
The march begins and ends at Boston Common on Saturday, Jan. 21 at 11 a.m. According to organizers, more than 40,000 people have signed up, so far. The Boston march is one of more than 250 sister marches planned for Saturday.
