The Accra march was a ‘sister march’ in solidarity with the main march in Washington DC which is believed to have drawn over 1.5 million marchers, more than the numbers that showed up for Donald Trump’s inauguration on Friday January 20.

That march was attended by a number of high profile personalities including music stars Angelique Kidjo, Alicia Keys, Madonna and the actress Patricia Arquette.

 

There were sister marches across all major US cities and around the world, in Rio, Nairobi, Tokyo, Sydney, London and even Antarctica.
