The Story What happened? After the march winded down people formed a drum circle in front of the White House and began dancing. The thousands of signs people had marched with were placed into the WH fence. I wanted to photograph the hundreds of feet of WH fence that had been transformed into a Berlin Wall-esque expression of Women's Liberation but it was too dark. Instead when I came back in the morning I saw the park Service had worked tirelessly through the night to take down the signs. Undoubtedly an order than came down from up high. I spent about 3 hours from 9am-12 rummaging through trash piles and taking pictures of the last signs as they were being thrown into dumpsters. In this video you can see some of the piles. Talking with the Park Service workers they estimated they had thrown away at least 300,000 signs filling four dumpsters and a trash truck. I know Trump doesn't want you to see these signs so I had to make this website. Witness
