Hundreds of Thousands Flood the Streets to Protest During Los Angeles Women’s March

After sweeping rains in the Los Angeles area—and with more storms on the horizon—the sun came out for the Women’s March in Southern California on Saturday. Hundreds of thousands of people clogged the city streets, sardined together for hours as the masses oozed from Pershing Square toward City Hall and back again. Like marches in scores of other cities around the country, this event was coordinated with the national organizers behind the Women’s March in Washington, D.C. But it had its own La La Land character. The area was lousy with celebrities—from Jamie Lee Curtis to Natalie Portman to Miley Cyrus—and had strong representation from immigrants, whom local politicians have vowed to protect in what many feel are uncertain times. “Right now there’s a threat of us regressing back in history,” said Camila Alvarado, a Colombian-American and documentary film maker who lived for in the U.S. for several years as an undocumented immigrant. She attended the march, she said, “to support equal rights for all, for women, for minorities, for white people, for black people.” The Los Angeles Police Department estimated that the march drew 500,000, but organizers said the number was higher, according to the Los Angeles Times. Trains and buses, packed to the walls, had to bypass crowds of people trying to get to the march in the morning. People reported on social media that Uber rides to Pershing Square from some parts of the city were estimated to cost more than $150, given the outsized demand. Organizers said the massive event was not meant to be “anti-Trump” or even a protest. “It really surpassed the election,” said Dove Rain, an energy healer who got involved in organizing the L.A. march days after Hillary Clinton lost the election. “It is a peaceful movement showing that we have each others’ backs.” As the collective consciousness of liberal California has gone through stages of shock and anger, those emotions have galvanized into a determination to do something among many groups dedicated to leftist causes. Though what that “something” might be in the long term remains unclear, the march provided a goal for them to focus on as the first days of Donald Trump’s presidency grew near. “In a time when we are all wondering what we can do, we can do this,” said Deena Katz, one of the producers of the event. “We became so charged by the positivity of creating the march,” said Rain, “that it healed a lot of people’s pain.” The pain will still evident in seas of signs. “My rights aren’t up for grabs, and neither am I,” said one of many referencing controversial statements made by Trump in a leaked Access Hollywood tape. Many did carry messages of hope and solidarity (“Love Trumps Hate”), but just as many carried messages of defiance, particularly toward the man who was sworn in as the 45th president 24 hours before (“Repeal and Replace Donald Trump”). Groups of women wore pink hats—so they’d be visible to the helicopters hovering above—and pink trench coats. Others carried pink balloons that were decorated with the words “Feminist as f—.” Many women said they were at the march to support women’s rights and reproductive rights, after an election that brought debates about misogyny to the national stage for several months. Overwhelmed by turnout, the march that was scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. was delayed for almost an hour. Chants like “Women’s rights are human rights” gave way to “March! March! March!” and “Go that way!” as some people, pinned in place, struggled to even get their arms in the air for selfies. People started gathering around 8 a.m. for an event expected to last all day. Thousands of men joined women to show support. And many came as families, like Hannah Waldman, a consultant who is pregnant with a daughter and was accompanied by her 5-year-old son, Leonard. “I want him to feel the energy, and I want him to see that people care about this,” Waldman said, as her boy held a bright green sign that said “My body, my choice!” But she was there to send a message to Trump, too. “ I want him to know we’re not going to sit back for four years,” she said, “and just watch while he strips away essential, basic rights.” […]

President Obama and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe Make Historic Visit to Pearl Harbor

President Barack Obama and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe have laid wreaths aboard the USS Arizona Memorial to honor Americans who died in the Pearl Harbor attacks. Obama and Abe entered a covered area of the memorial where a marbled wall lists names of U.S. troops who died in the waters below. They stood at the entrance for a moment of silence. Then the leaders approached and adjusted a pair of green-and-peach-colored wreaths made of lilies. Obama’s wreath bore a white ribbon saying “In Remembrance, Barack Obama, President of the United States, and Abe’s a ribbon that says “In Remembrance, Shinzo Abe, Prime Minister of Japan.” Both leaders bowed their heads slightly but said nothing before slowly exiting. It’s the first visit by a Japanese prime minister to the memorial. […]

The Brazilian Soccer Team’s Home Town Has Begun 30 Days of Mourning

Businesses were closed across the grief-stricken Brazilian city of Chapecó on Tuesday as residents struggled to process the devastating tragedy that had befallen their beloved soccer team Chapecoense. Almost every member of a team described as the “Cinderella story” of Brazilian soccer was killed when its chartered plane crashed in mountainous terrain near the Colombian city of Medellin late Monday local time, with the loss of 71 lives. The British Aerospace 146 jet was supposed to be carrying players to the game of their lives — the first leg of the finals of the Copa Sudamericana tournament — capping a fairytale rise to the top division of Brazilian soccer. Instead, municipal officials in Chapecó — a city of 210,000 people in the southern Brazilian state of Santa Catarina — have cancelled all holiday season activities and declared 30 days of mourning, according to Wall Street Journal. “It’s like the whole city has died,” one senior official reportedly said. The Arena Condá stadium — where the team were next scheduled to play on Dec. 6 — has become a focal point for large numbers of grieving fans, clad in green team jerseys. “We can only cry, and try to understand what’s happening,” the Journal quoted a local business owner as saying. NELSON ALMEIDA—AFP/Getty Images Fans light candles in tribute to the players of Brazilian team Chapecoense Real killed in a plane crash in the Colombian mountains, at their football stadium in Chapeco, Santa Catarina, Brazil on November 29, 2016. Brazil’s champion soccer team, Sao Paolo’s Palmeiras, has asked the Brazilian Football Confederation if its players can wear Chapecoense colors for the last match of the season, Associated Press reports. Other clubs reportedly said that they want to freely loan players to Chapecoense for the 2017 season. Meanwhile, Brazil has declared three days of national mourning for victims of the crash. President Michel Temer said Air Force planes would be deployed to help relatives of the victims to travel to Colombia and for the transfer of the bodies to Brazil, AP says. […]

Kim Kardashian West Defended by Celebrities After Armed Robbery

Celebrities have spoken out in support of Kim Kardashian West who was robbed at gunpoint in a Paris hotel room on Sunday by men dressed as police officers.

Her husband Kanye West stopped a concert short as soon as he heard about the incident. But not everyone felt sorry for the reality star, with some Twitter users posting jokes about the incident after the news broke. Among others, James Corden came to Kardashian West’s defense, reminding everyone that she is a human being and deserved sympathy.

Hillary Clinton Pulls Ahead of Donald Trump in Post-Convention Poll

Donald Trump enjoyed a post-convention boost in the polls last month, and now it’s Hillary Clinton’s turn. In a new poll by CNN/ORC, the Democratic nominee leads 52% to 43% in a two-way face-off. When the contest is expanded to four candidates, including Gary Johnson and Jill Stein, Clinton still leads 45% to Trump’s 37%, Johnson’s 9% and Stein’s 5%. Nearly half of registered voters said watching or reading about the Democratic National Convention made them feel more likely to support Clinton, compared with 39% who said it turned them off. After the Republican National Convention, 42% of registered voters said they’re more likely to vote for Trump based on what they saw or read, compared with 44% who said they’re less likely. The poll was conducted by telephone from July 29 to 31 and included 1,003 adults, 894 of whom were registered voters. The margin of sampling error among registered voters was plus or minus 3.5%. […]
