Trains were flooded. Some people waited hours to get onto a train from the Westside. Pershing Square Station was shut down. As early as 8 a.m. the surge pricing for ride to downtown on Lyft and Uber was anywhere from 150 to 500 percent .
And still they kept coming. They came from the Santa Monica, from Beverly Hills, from USC, from Eagle Rock and Hollywood. The people kept coming to speak out, chant and march for women's rights (and against the small-fingered vulgarian who proved that voter suppression and Russian support can steal the United States Presidency.*)
An estimated 750,000 women, men and children attended the Women's March Los Angeles this Saturday in downtown Los Angeles, making it the largest demonstration in Los Angeles in over a decade. We traveled from Seventh Street/Metro Center station, up Hill Street to Pershing Square and City Hall and back again, surrounded by hundreds of thousands who never pushed or stepped on or insulted us, as we went about getting you the best photos of the protesters, the rally and the love-in that was the Women's March L.A. Read deputy culture editor Gwynedd Stuart's account of the march.
