WASHINGTON — Activists planning a Women’s March on Washington want to send a message to the new administration on the day after the inauguration, but officials say they aren’t the only group seeking a National Mall gathering that day.

WTOP-FM (http://bit.ly/2fMnh7X ) quotes National Park Service spokesman Mike Litterst as saying that other applications were submitted before organizers applied on Nov. 16 for a permit for the march, which aims to send the message “that women’s rights are human rights.”

Applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis and Litterst says organizers likely won’t get approval to march as many as 200,000 people from the Lincoln Memorial to the White House as they requested. He says another option is to hold the march at a different time and location.

Organizers haven’t commented.

  1. Make sure that these leftist groups comply with all the laws and regulations to obtain a permit. They must place a bond to cover the clean up of the mess that these leftist slobs will make as they show their disgust for America and the US Constitution.
