Hundreds of thousands of women and men crowded the streets of Washington in an anti-Donald Trump rally and march on Saturday. Photographer Polina Yamshchikov (@polinavy) shared faces and voices from the street for @theintercept on Instagram. As she followed along the route of the Women’s March on Washington, she asked the people that she met the same question: What are you marching for?

Ayesha Gill and Rabia Baig, from Virginia. “We are here to show support for everyone else who has been marginalized by Donald Trump. We’ve got their backs, and we’re so grateful that they have ours.”

Dustin Philips, from Washington, D.C. “The collective energy—and positive feelings—here are such a contrast from yesterday. It has given me a little hope.”

Alina Mogilyanskaya and Elia Gran, from Barcelona. Alina says she is marching because she wants “to resist the new regime,” while Elia says: “I am here for selfish reasons: for my own need to feel accompanied and feel this presence in this difficult time. I am from Barcelona and this march feels independent from any government. Women’s rights are truly universal. I came because I could participate, regardless of citizenship.”

Rui Wang, of Tucson. “I came to send a message to the U.S. and to the world that decency, kindness, justice, constitutionality are important. It’s a big tent and we may not all agree on every single issue, but it’s so important to show solidarity with one other.”

Gayle Ayer, of Panama. “I care about my grandkids, but I’m not just here for my family—I am here for the whole world. He [Trump] wants to destroy so much. This matters a lot.”

Rosie Silvers, 16, (right) and Anna Goodman (left), of Maryland. Rosie says the girls are “here because we care about democracy, feminism, and human rights. We also came because we didn’t have much of a voice in that we were too young to vote, so we want to make sure we are heard.”

Loretta Aiken, of Virginia.“I’ve lived around here for over 45 years and this is the biggest crowd that i’ve seen here since the Vietnam Protests. I was here for the original women’s movement in ’71-72. It makes me sad. Why have we not progressed further? We have in a lot of ways but we have so long to go.”

Connie Chen, of New York. “As a person of color who is also a woman, I know how vital it is to stand up for things you believe in. I am here today to stand with my fellow women, people of color, muslims, and oppressed people off all kinds.”

Chase Palmer, 16, and Julia Camara, 15, from D.C. “We are here because we refuse to tolerate who is in office.”
