We are now living in an era of resistance. Since US President Trump has ascended to power, more people have become inspired to take on his evil plans. Just a day after his inauguration, women (with the support of men), marched in order to show solidarity. They have rebuked Trump and his policies.
After the successful Women’s March, several other marches took place. These included marches for science, environment and the release of the president’s tax returns. No one thought the resistance movement would be this huge. In fact, during the women’s march, several plans were canceled due to the overwhelming number of people who have come to support the cause.
As a result of these huge numbers, more preparations have to be done. Certain venues that used to be the place for small rallies are no longer possible. Permits to protest on the street are not that effective anymore. Bigger venues are now considered especially for huge rallies.
Marching is just one of the many aspects of the rallies against the president. There are also speeches on stage and performances to keep the people going. Otherwise, they would just walk and go home.
The need for high quality equipment
Most rally organizers have spent so much time thinking of how they can reach out to a lot of people who have gone out of their way to join the rallies. This is why they have invested on stage equipment. The usual sound system used for small rallies is no longer sufficient. There should be equipment that would allow hundreds upon thousands of people to hear what is going on.
Some organizers even consider using the best sound bars for TV. They are perfect for huge settings. They can help amplify the sounds to allow more people to hear the audio clearly. They are also portable. Even if there are different venues to stage protests, this equipment can be easily brought.
Be a part of the change
More people are inspired to take a stance against the president. He has done nothing but to put the country to shame. These movements should also inspire you to do your share. There are people organizing these movements. The least that you can do is to take part in the rallies. If you are too busy to go out of your way, donate to certain organizations. Let them know that you support their cause. Help campaign for local government officials that you think will help pull down a crazy sitting president.
There are a lot of ways for you to be more involved in this difficult time. You can be an agent of change if you decide to. We have already given this president a chance to prove his worth, but he keeps on embarrassing himself. He can continue doing what he thinks is right, but you can always find a way to stop him. The combined voices of the people will surely effect changes in this society. Resistance is needed now, more than ever.
