"Due to several issues we have decided it is necessary to cancel the 2019 Women's March in New Orleans," organizers posted to social media last week, according to the Washington Times.Suppose they gave a march and nobody cared?
In the announcement, organizers said controversy with Women's March national leaders has led to a steep decline in overall interest, including fundraising and participation. Last month, devastating exposés in Tablet Magazine and the New York Times revealed the deep anti-Semitic ties among the most prominent leaders in the Women's March movement.
"Many of the sister marches have asked the leaders of Women's March, Inc. to resign but as of today, they have yet to do so," the announcement said. "The controversy is dampening efforts of sister marches to fundraise, enlist involvement, find sponsors and attendee numbers have drastically declined this year. New Orleans is no exception."
"However, this does not mean the end of our momentum in Louisiana. It's time to look past the marching and look towards a new stage of the movement," the posting reassured.
