Linda Sarsour, Tamika Mallory, Carmen Perez, and Bob Bland (the leaders of the Women’s March on Washington) were arrested after blocking traffic outside Trump International Hotel in Columbus Circle in New York City just hours ago.
They purposefully wanted to do an act of civil disobedience for "A Day Without A Woman," the left's re-appropriation of International Women's Day. Key themes are pro-abortion, pro-sex worker rights, and pro-gender fluidity.
Linda Sarsour is a Palestinian-American progressive political activist and former executive director of the Arab American Association of New York.
She was behind the Women's March on Washington, protesting Trump. What do you think of her recent arrest?
