Throngs of marchers pack Downtown Marquette Sunday

Jan 22, 2018

MARQUETTE, MI--   A bright morning turned into a cold, misty afternoon Sunday, but marchers in Marquette didn’t let that dampen their spirits.

Hundreds of women, men, and children holding signs congregated at the Marquette Commons between 1 and 2 p.m. They were there to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the Women’s March, held in cities across the country to speak out against oppressive policies. 

The Marquette event included a march down Main to Front to Washington Street, then a rally on the corners of Third and Washington with speakers, singing, and drumming by the native group Morning Thunder.
