‘Pussy grabs back’ Trump protest to hit South Street Tuesday

It’s part of the GOP Hands Off Me organization.

UPDATE: Here’s what it was like outside the protest.

In Philly, the pussy is grabbing back.

At least, that’s according to organizers of a feminist protest that will descend on South Street outside a Donald Trump field office early tomorrow morning as part of a national “Pussy Grabs Back” protest of Trump and the GOP.

Hundreds of people have been invited to take part in the protest Tuesday morning at 8 a.m. at 8th and South near Trump’s office. All genders are welcome, and the demonstration will urge members of the GOP — and the rest of the country — to denounce Trump.

The action follows the release of a 2005 Access Hollywood tape of Trump bragging about groping women. Since then, 10 women have come forward saying Trump sexually harassed or groped them.

The “day of action” is a national movement organized by GOP Hands Off Me, a national organization urging “a wave of feminist action” leading up to the final presidential debate on Wednesday “to make visible women’s power to live full lives free from fear of racial, economic and sexual assault.”

All genders are invited to take part in the protest, but it will be “women-led.” Organizers are asking participants to register here so they can get an idea of how many people to plan for.

‘Pussy grabs back’ Trump protest on South Street

This Tuesday across the country, women, survivors, and allies, led by women of color, will tell the GOP to un-endorse Trump. In Philly, activists are gathering in front of Donald Trump's South Philly campaign office at 836 South Street at 8 a.m. All genders are welcome.

Where: 8th and South at 836 South St.

When: October 18, 2016 from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.
