Thousand’s across the nation march in protest Demanding Trump show his taxes…

This ain’t going away…..

In all, more than 100 marches are expected to occur throughout the day. The main march unfolded in the nation’s capital, where protesters gathered for a rally in front of the Capitol and then planned to march near the Lincoln Memorial in the afternoon. In South Florida, activists say they will march to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort, where the president is staying this weekend.

Presidents are not required to release their tax returns but have done so voluntarily dating to the 1970s.

In Washington, participants at the march portrayed the president as a greedy politician who refuses to be open about his financial dealings.

Hundreds wore shirts with an image of Trump’s face as the Monopoly mascot. Others held signs with former president Richard M. Nixon’s face, saying even Nixon, who resigned the presidency in disgrace, released his taxes. There was a large inflatable chicken, with hair that resembles Trump’s, suggesting Trump is “too chicken” to release his taxes.

C.J. Ingram, a D.C. resident in her 50s who works in a funeral home, attended the march, her first protest during Trump’s presidency.

Women’s March on Washington will kick off what opponents of the incoming administration hope will be a new era of demonstrations against the Republican agenda. But in some states, nonviolent demonstrating may soon carry increased legal risks — including punishing fines and significant prison terms — for people who participate in protests involving civil disobedience. Over the past few weeks, Republican legislators across the country have quietly introduced a number of proposals to criminalize and discourage peaceful protest.

The proposals, which strengthen or supplement existing laws addressing the blocking or obstructing of traffic, come in response to a string of high-profile highway closures and other actions led by Black Lives Matter activists and opponents of the Dakota Access Pipeline. Republicans reasonably expect an invigorated protest movement during the Trump years….
