Those upset that Donald Trump was elected president last year aren’t done expressing it, so much so that Facebook events across the country, calling for people to join together and “scream helplessly at the sky” on the election’s anniversary, are gaining thousands of followers.
The idea came from Boston, where people will gather in America’s oldest park, the Boston Common, to scream. Other liberal cities like New York, Austin and Philadelphia picked up the idea.
“This administration has attacked everything about what it means to be American. Who wouldn’t feel helpless every day?” Boston organizer Johanna Schulman said. “Coming together reminds us that we are not alone, that we are part of an enormous community of activists who are motivated and angry, whose actions can make a difference.”
More than 33,000 so far have said they are interested in the Boston event, with more than 4,000 planning to go.
Meanwhile, in New York City, more than 15,000 said they are interested to scream in Washington Square Park, and more than 2,000 plan to go.
