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



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.
