Yasmin Nair addresses the issue of whether or not to march against Donald Trump this week, or in the months and years following.

Abstract:

Excerpt:

Health and structural issues prevent me from joining marchers on the 20th but if I could, I would. This doesn't mean I support the march. I would march simply because I think it helps to send a signal, on Inauguration Day, to an extreme right wing, that millions are watching. In truth, I'm not even sure about anything beyond that: I wouldn't march to send a message, because I'm not clear on what the "message" could be. The overall position of all the marches seems to be that "we" have lost some Eden, and that the country -- and world -- is moving perilously close to end times.
