"We marched for the protection of our fundamental rights and for the safeguarding of freedoms threatened by recent political events. We united and stood together for the dignity and equality of all peoples, for the safety and health of our planet and for the strength of our vibrant and diverse communities.
We came together in the spirit of democracy, honouring the champions of human rights who have gone before us. Our numbers were- and still are - too great to ignore. and the message to the world is clear: We're here, and we aren't going anywhere!"
