Dimitrios Papadimoulis, a member of Syriza and vice president of the European Parliament, is not alone in his opposition to "cutting pensions, wages and further minimizing public spending on social benefits." Filippidis explained: "Greece's middle class is collapsing under the weight of over-taxation, plummeting savings, and further impoverishment. In today's Greece, four workers are paying taxes and contributions in order to pay the pensions of three pensioners and cover the needs to provide public health services, education, justice, defense, etc. Obviously this model is not sustainable." Pensions alone accounted for about 17 percent of GDP in 2015, compared to an EU average of nearly 12 percent. Further privatization would help, but the value of state assets has dropped by about 60 percent since the crash and, more important, parastatals are seen a politically-popular source of jobs.

St. Paul, Minnesota, and Boston were two other cities where crowds of more than 50,000 people were reported. Tens of thousands of protesters gathered at a rally in Oakland, California. Jen Tellier from Alameda, California, said, "I'm here because I'm very concerned about Trump and all the changes he and his cronies say they will do right away. This is threatening to Medicare, social security, the environment, education. You name it, I'm worried." Carolynn and Seth Melchert of Oakland also were in attendance. "I felt moved to be in solidarity with everyone who has concerns with what the future holds, and hope that as citizens we have power and we stand up for what we believe in," Carolynn Melchert said. Her husband, Seth, added, "Across the world, millions have put their lives on the line everyday just to survive. This is the least I can do. I'm prepared to put myself on the line more than I normally am called to do in America.

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 thought that Steve Bannon, Mr Trump's chief strategist, wanted to bring it forward over a businesslike visit, by which they mean none of the fancy social receptions, visits to camp David that we saw in the bush- Blair years, but just serious talks about the White House.

The CIA visit came after Trump openly warred with the intelligence community during his transition, expressing doubt about its conclusions that Russia intervened in the election to aid him and comparing the intelligence agencies to “Nazi Germany” for alleged leaks. His performance at Langley echoed his strikingly populist inaugural address Friday, and his comments at inaugural balls later in the evening, including exchanges with members of the armed services at the Military Ball in which Trump returned to familiar themes about his election victory. After musing Friday about those who want him off Twitter, he took to social media Saturday morning to praise Fox News for its coverage of his inaugural address. He also set about putting his personal touch on the Oval Office, from changing the drapes to giving prominent placement to a bust of Winston Churchill.

The movement had started on social media, but word soon spread across the globe. As sister marches gained momentum. Is there a fear that you are preaching to the converted here? I'm not sure we are. I think from what we have gathered on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, there are heaps of people out here who have never marched before, heaps of people who have never voted before but they feel something has triggered in their hearts, they need to come out.

Trump’s address to the CIA is set to be live-streamed on WhiteHouse.gov, and has echoes of President Obama’s own visit to Langley early in his presidency, when the CIA was under fire for its use of harsh interrogation techniques. But unlike Trump, Obama made his visit on a Monday, when there were far more personnel actually at the office. After delivering a strikingly populist inaugural address Friday, and between the ceremonial events of the day, Trump signed an executive order to freeze regulations and another that could start the process of undermining the Affordable Care Act. After musing Friday about those who want him off Twitter, he took to social media Saturday morning to praise Fox News for its coverage of his inaugural address. He also set about putting his personal touch on the Oval Office, from changing the drapes to giving prominent placement to a bust of Winston Churchill.
