This Week in Photos: Rights (Oct. 23, 2020)

The fifth Women’s March came earlier than expected. Usually held in January, the nationwide demonstration was held last Saturday in opposition of President Donald Trump’s attempt to fill Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat with an election underway.

Plattsburgh’s march, which joined more than 300 demonstrations across the U.S., started at the US Oval with speakers like Kimberly Davis, a State Senate candidate, before marching to downtown Plattsburgh and back.

Chants of “Women’s rights are human rights,” “Don’t fill the seat,” “Vote him out” and “We dissent” filled the streets of downtown Plattsburgh as about 200 marchers made their way down Margaret Street.
