"Can you hear me? Are you ready to shake up the world? Welcome to the revolution of love," Madonna told the marchers. "To the rebellion, to our refusal as women to accept this new age of tyranny. Where not just women are in danger, but all marginalized people. " "It took this horrific moment of darkness to wake us the fuck up," Madonna continued.

Canadians traveling to Women's March denied US entry after sharing their plans. Would-be protesters heading to the Women’s March on Washington have said they were denied entry to the United States after telling border agents at a land crossing in Quebec their plans to attend the march.
Montrealer Sasha Dyck was part of a group of eight who had arranged online to travel together to Washington. Divided into two cars, the group – six Canadians and two French nationals – arrived at the border crossing that connects St Bernard de Lacolle in Quebec with Champlain, New York, on Thursday. The group was upfront about their plans with border agents, Dyck said. “We said we were going to the women’s march on Saturday and they said, ‘Well, you’re going to have to pull over’.” What followed was a two-hour ordeal. Border agents first told the two French citizens that they had been denied entry to the US and informed them that any future visit to the US would now require a visa.
“Then for the rest of us, they said, ‘You’re headed home today’,” Dyck said. Thank these women for the equality you have. Say Thank You Say thank you.
