Just days after one of the founding members of the Women’s March movement, Vanessa Wruble, claimed she was forced out of her leadership position because of her Jewish lineage, word on the street is that the planned march in Chicago is now officially cancelled.
According to the Chicago Tribune, the march in 2017 and 2018 is described as, “an event that for the past two years drew hundreds of thousands of supporters to Grant Park in concert with similar marches across the globe.”
Interesting wordplay. Nevertheless, for an organization with such a massive following and the potential for millions of dollars in their coffers, the reasons given for cancelling the January 19, 2019 march are less than credible.
As reported by The Tribune;
While Women’s March Chicago organizers cited high costs and limited volunteer hours as the main reasons for nixing the annual rally and march, the break comes amid splintering within the national Women’s March leadership following accusations of anti-Semitism and scrutiny of its ties to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
Marches and rallies are still planned for Jan. 19 in Washington, D.C., and dozens of cities nationwide and internationally, as well as other parts of Illinois like Rockford, southwest suburban New Lenox and northwest suburban Woodstock.
Women’s March Chicago leaders say they’ll commemorate the anniversary of the original march with another activity but haven’t released any details on the location or nature of the event.
