Impeachment, anti-Muslim Ban, GLBTQ marches against Trump join at Trump Hotel

The 27th of January was the anniversary of Donald Trump signing Executive Order 13769, also known as Muslim Ban 1.0. This triggered massive airport protests and urban marches a year ago. This year in DC, the march gathered at the White House to oppose Trump's current Muslim Ban, and was met there by the "People's March on Washington," a much larger march, from the WWII Memorial demanding Trump be impeached.Both marched together to Trump Hotel, where they joined with WERK for Peace's "intersectional" GLBTQ dance party.
