Thousands of women and men have gathered ahead of a global "solidarity" march in the wake of the inauguration of US President Donald Trump.

The Women's March on London event is being held in conjunction with others taking place in cities across the world to promote women's and human rights.

Marches are also happening in other UK cities including Manchester, Edinburgh, Belfast, Liverpool and Cardiff, with thousands expected to attend.


About 200,000 people - including celebrities Katy Perry, Scarlett Johansson and Amy Schumer - are expected to take part in a demonstration in Washington DC later on Saturday.

Beginning at the American Embassy in London, the march will snake its way around the streets of the capital and finish with a rally in Trafalgar Square.

The movement states on its website that the US election "proved a catalyst for a grassroots movement of women to assert the positive values that the politics of fear denies".


Organisers of the London march are calling for people to join them "as part of an international day of action in solidarity" on President Trump's first full day in the Oval Office.

A throng of people across all ages and genders descended on Grosvenor Square holding a rainbow of placards with slogans such as "dump Trump", "reject hate, reclaim politics" and "no to racism, no to Trump".

Mr Trump's presidential campaign was plunged into crisis after a 2005 tape recording came to light of him bragging to TV host Billy Bush about groping women and that he can "grab them by the p****" because of his celebrity status.


Holding a sign saying "my p**** is not up for grabs", Kim McInally said she had travelled from Brighton for the demonstration.

The 32-year-old said: "Yesterday was seen as the official start of fascism coming back."

She claimed "human rights and human equality is getting pushed further and further down the list".

In Bristol, more than 1,000 people marched from Queen Square to College Green - just 72 hours after the event was organised.

The group chanted and held placards as they took part in the Sister March in solidarity with the Women's March On Washington.


Blogger Carly Wilkinson, 32, began organising the march from her kitchen table in the city on Wednesday.

"I didn't expect to cry but I have just experienced every emotion," she said.

"I wanted to make the world know that Bristol feels the same as many, that our voices could be heard together.

"I felt really sad that somebody who has his views has been elected into a very powerful seat."

Signs at the march included the slogans "We Reject The Comb-Over Con", "Dump Trump" and "Feminism is Pro-Human".

Spectators lining the London route cheered as the protest made its away towards Trafalgar Square.

At the front of the march a woman dressed as the Statue of Liberty brandished a torch bearing an image of Mr Trump's face.

Her sign read: "The statue of taking liberties."

As the crowd made its way along Piccadilly, they chanted: "Build bridges not walls."

Celebrities joining the throngs of people carrying placards included rugby ace Chris Robshaw and Iron Man 3 actress, Rebecca Hall.

Hall said she joined the march because she is half American and half English, and said if she had been on the other side of her pond she would have joined the Washington DC demonstration.

"It is important for me to march in solidarity," she said.

"Yesterday was a confusing day and a sad day, - I was sad to see Obama leave... We do not know what the Government is going to be like."

She said Trump's views, what he says and politics are aimed at people she cares about - including "women, people of colour, immigrants and the LGBT community".

"If that is all true then it is important that we all stand up and be here, together, in solidarity."

Small minded protesters. Where were they when previous American presidents honoured their election pledges to their sponsors by declaring war on humanity and pursuing it shamelessly on behalf of the arms industry? Where were they when their politically correct presidents honoured their election promises to the banks and rewarded them with the legislation to implode the world's economy and then compensated them with tax payer's money while leaving tax payers in poverty?

Trump should be assessed for his successes and failures in politics not on his image. I do, however, find it ironic that someone as tacky as Madonna who sells sex as her image should be so vocal about the image of Trump.

Come back in 18 months or so and judge him for his performance as a president, not as a man because he wasn't elected for his personality but for his policies, many of which have already been consigned to the scrap heap.

Faggotry

I detest gender role reversal and faggotry. Drumpf will not do anything about that.
These are contrived protests . No one protested the rape of Libya and Syria and Obomber's use of drones.
9/11 was an inside job.
No second plane.It was a bomb.Bomb in the other building.
You KNOW without a doubt the videos are fake,right ?!
Planes don't meld into steel and concrete buildings.They crash into them !!!!!!!
It's amazing how the building ate the plane !!!
Imagine those fragile wings cutting slots in massive steel columns !!!!!
How STUPID can they think the people are to believe that crap ??!!
