This Week in Resistance: Dancing, Marching, and Rallying in D.C.

Lauryn Gutierrez

Protests continued in great numbers throughout the Trump administration’s third week in power in Washington, D.C. The party-line confirmations of controversial cabinet members Betsy DeVos, Jeff Sessions, and Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) outraged citizens and activists, and the #MuslimBan has continued to inspire large counter-movements for the second week in a row. The #NoDAPL movement suffered a crushing blow on Tuesday when the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers permitted the Dakota Access pipeline project to proceed, threatening the water of 17 million people and sacred lands. With a protest or vigil occurring somewhere in the city nearly every day, Rewire was on the ground to document the resistance.
