Demonstrations in Charlotte
The Women's March in Charlotte brought thousands of people demonstrating in uptown Charlotte. A picture is worth a thousand words, so we have lots of words expressed here. I posted a few of these on one of the largest photo sites on the web, and some people complained about them so I was told not to submit any more, and if I did I would be banned from the site. They also said that they liked my other work wish I would just stop posting things like these. Part of my background is in photojournalism. These are news photos of what went on the day After Trump took office. This is news, you might not agree with what is being said, but in years to come people will look back at photos like these to see how we got here and how people reacted.

96 imagesTaking these photos, I really felt that I was part of a movement. I stayed standing in one place, and these people kept walking by me for over and hour and a half. The paper said that around 10,000 people marched in uptown Charlotte.
14 imagesMany windows were broken around the Transite Center in Uptown Charlotte. One hotel had all of its street level windows broken. The hotel called on local artist to help make the store front beautiful and several artist responded.
29 imagesAfter President Trump banned Muslims from coming into the USA, people started to protest. I first posted a few from the women march in Charlotte and a few days later the Muslims Ban was protested. These are so mild compared to the Women's March but this is what brought the threat of my being banned. With out Freedom of the press, we will have not freedom of information then how can we ever really be free. The poster "Refugees are welcome here is what almost got me banned.
