Marchers: ‘I want to stand with my sisters’

18 hours ago

Hundreds of thousands marched in more than 300 cites across the world on Saturday in the second Women's March.

In New York, thousands crammed the streets carrying signs about the Trump administration, women's rights, reproductive rights and more.

We asked protesters how this year's march was different and why they decided to participate.

See what they said.

Determined to not let the momentum die, protesters once again converged on hundreds of cities — at home and abroad — for the second annual Women's March, seeking not only to unite in a call for social change but also to channel their fury into voter action.

Paul Bocuse, whom the French president called "the epitome of French cuisine," died Saturday at the age of 91.

"Today French gastronomy is losing a mythical figure that profoundly transformed it," the Élysée said.

The second year of Donald Trump's presidency began on Saturday with the US government in shutdown mode while lawmakers gathered in hopes of finding a compromise that would fund federal agencies.

For the first time since October 2013 — when a similar standoff that lasted 16 days kept only essential agency operations running — federal workers were being told to stay at home or in some cases to work without pay until new funding is approved.

Turkey opened a new front in Syria's war on Saturday, launching airstrikes against a US-backed Kurdish militia in Afrin province that raises the prospect of deeper strains between Ankara and NATO ally Washington.

The operation, which the Turks dubbed Operation Olive Branch, sees Ankara confronting Kurdish fighters allied to the United States at a time when relations between Turkey and Washington — both members of the coalition against ISIS — appear dangerously close to a breaking point.
