Internationally acclaimed and Indian-born actress Freida Pinto says that the protest march against the Donald Trump’s swearing in ceremony as the 45th President, was not only against him but the culmination of what many men, women and children were feeling against the widespread injustice in USA.
32-year-old actress, now based in Los Angeles, in an interview to IANS said that one of the things that people grossly misunderstood is that the woman’s march was something that was against Trump only. She further explained that it was the culmination of all things that men, women, and children have been feeling for such a long time, whether it comes to simple acts and freedom of deciding where they want to live and how they are going to live. This statement explained the ideology of the march when thousands of women across the US came together for a peaceful protest march on the day Trump was sworn in last month. Many celebrities also extended support to the march.
The Slumdog Millionaire actress is very well known for her humanitarian works and she has also been publically very vocal about women empowerment in the past. She is also featured in a video ‘Why I March’ directed by American director, Nannette Berstein.
Freida while talking about immigration said that if they are immigrants, they shouldn’t be banned from legally going to any place where they could possibly have or start leading a better life. Even for LGBT communities, your rights cannot be taken away from you… So it was really a march to protest against all these injustices as opposed to one person that we were trying to protest against
