Local Residents To Make A Statement With Women's March On Washington

Local residents of the East End who will be participating in the Women's March on Washington. KYRIL BROMLEY
Jan 17, 2017 2:59 PM

On Saturday morning, at least 10 Hampton Jitney buses will roll off Long Island to take hundreds of South Fork residents to Washington, D.C., to kick off the first full day of Donald Trump’s presidency by joining a projected 200,000 participants in the Women’s March on Washington.

One of the local groups organizing buses is the East End Women (and others) to Effect CHANGE, which has three 52-seat Jitneys already filled. One of the group’s administrators, Kate Mueth of the East Hampton Arts Council and the Neo-Political Cowgirls, said that the activist group, which focuses on civil rights, was started in October after Ms. Mueth and friends noticed that the presidential race had started to look “challenging.”

Concern among some heightened after a woman in Hampton Bays was assaulted with racist slurs and Ku Klux Klan fliers and similar materials appeared in Amagansett and Hampton Bays.

Talking about it with colleagues is one thing, but Ms. Mueth said that jumping into a national discussion with this march and speaking out on such a large scale feels like something else entirely.

“It feels like a bucket of thousands of fish hooks and I’m putting my hand into it to try and sort them out,” she said this week. “There are so many players in this game and they’re coming from all sides. It’s not black and white, it’s not the right and the left anymore.”

“I had so many women emailing me saying, ‘I’m scared, I don’t know what to do. I’ve never felt like this before,’ from some women I’d never even met before,” Ms. Mueth said this week. “My solution was, ‘Let’s beat ’em to the punch. Let’s do the opposite as loudly and exhaustively as possible to counteract.’ There’s more good people, more rational caring people in the world and we just need to be as obnoxiously loud about our actions as well.”

Social media has played a major role in spreading word about the march and bringing people in. One is Melissa Sidor of East Quogue, who organized two coach buses with 105 passengers (with still more trying to sign up) for the Suffolk County Democratic Committee, the Southampton Democratic Committee, and the Brookhaven Democratic Committee after hearing about the march on Facebook. Ms. Sidor said she feels that people have been misinformed or choose to ignore facts when it comes to the new administration’s policies and credits Facebook with providing a place to coordinate information.

“I just had dozens of women friends and women in the Democratic Party, and men too, who were very interested and excited about the idea of heading down to the march,” Ms. Sidor said. “I have to say, as much as Facebook is demonized in a way, I think it does provide a platform for people to share important information with each other and try to have dialogue with their friends about things that are really important.”

Ms. Sidor said her 10-year-old son, Casey, told her that children at the Quogue Elementary School were making disparaging comments about Hillary Clinton and bullying other students while using Mr. Trump’s name as an excuse in the fall. The bullying became so uncomfortable for Casey that he transferred to East Quogue Elementary School in the beginning of October.

“My Mom tell us a lot of things, like she brings us downstairs to watch the news,” Casey said at their home this week. “A lot of kids, they don’t watch the news. My Mom tells us everything.”

“It’s what the facts are behind everything, instead of just platitudes of ‘Hillary is good, Trump is bad.’ The information behind it that’s necessary to form an opinion is important,” Ms. Sidor said. “You weren’t seeing that, you were just seeing the platitudes.”

“They just said, ‘Trump is cool!’ and stuff like that,” Casey said.

Participants like Aimee Fitzpatrick Martin and her husband, Kent Martin, of Hampton Bays want to make sure their messages at the march are as clear as possible, when they attend the march with their two children, Jack, 19, and Flynn, 15.

“It’s not out of disrespect for the office of president, I respect that and I respect the country,” Ms. Martin said. “It’s out of voicing concern that the presidential office is going to be inhabited by a man who has a history of hate-filled rhetoric. We’ve seen him be accused of sexually attacking women and bragging about it, denigrating whole religions, being racist. There are so many reasons, I’m concerned that this kind of behavior is going to be normalized over the next four years. That’s what I don’t want to see.”

Mr. Martin believes the march will send a message stating that the people want to support the new president as long as he remains faithful to his oath to respect the rights laid out by the nation’s forefathers.

“He will have just taken the oath of office to uphold and defend the Constitution and I think part of the reason why I’m there is to support him in that,” Mr. Martin said.

“There has been a lot of negativity toward certain groups, including Muslims, the disabled, refugees, immigrants and even women,” Ms. Sidor said. “I think the point of going and marching is sending a message to the new administration that there are countless numbers of us that are not OK with that and we believe all people should be treated with dignity and respect. People should not be singled out for just being in an ethnic, religious or gender group.”

“There comes a point where if each of us doesn’t lend our voice, our bodies, our talents and put it on the line, then we are complacent and we are part of the problem,” said Ms. Mueth. “The one thing that does compel me more to feeling really good about this is that there are more of us that want human rights for all, that want to protect our fellow citizens. There are more of us that want to change our government for the better, and it’s not just an ideological ‘better,’ but it’s literally the basic tenet of human rights, which are, ‘Your rights are equal to my rights.’”

I voted for Hillary but am willing to see what Trump does before forming an opinion about his policies. I would love to see him be the best president we ever had. My question to you is whether you did the same when Obama was elected 8 years ago. Many people that are now preaching that we need to get behind the president or are un-American were Team McConnell 8 years ago. I can't stand hypocrisy.

Of course he didn't. Trump supporters are the biggest hypocrites this side of the Reagan years. They have no real interest in the future of this country. Only in that 'they won'. Enjoy your 'victory' people. It will be short-lived and once again the Democrats will have to bail us out and reverse all the damage done.

Well done ladies! Best of luck on your march. Be smart and be safe.

No, the purpose of the march, just in case you haven't been paying attention, is gender equality, racial equality, LGBTQIA equality, economic justice & reproductive rights, equal pay, paid family leave, labor protection, clean air & water & access to public lands, for an end to violence against women, police brutality & racial profiling.

I hope that the march assuages somewhat the anxiety that these women feel but the reality is that the federal government is lost to Trump's war-on-everything-that's-not-just-like-him for at least the next two years.

However, the convocation would be an ideal occasion for the women to join in a massed prayer that god prevent Trump and the Right-Wing from sending their children into a THIRD Middle East war. At least there's some hope there.

In a remarkably honest write-up, the New York Times has acknowledged that the Women’s March on Washington is nothing more than a front for the U.S. abortion lobby and has quashed attempts of pro-life feminists to participate.

According to the Times, organizers have created a “bitter rift” among women’s groups by spurning the requests of pro-life organizations to be officially included in Saturday’s Women’s March on Washington.
