This is like the new Occupy Wall Street?

Right, I clicked through and saw.

We are now on day 4 of #notmypresident :

My question is whether this movement will last for years like Occupy Wall Street did.

With international underpinnings started years ago, I think OWS was/is a more generic protest. The arguments against Trump are well-defined... and I think are felt much more on a personal level.

"Protesters Take Anti-Trump Message to His Doorstep, and Plan Next Steps"

Some example comments:

• “It’s not just saying that we’re against Trump, we have to defend ourselves against the policies he’s promising to create,”.

• "Leaders from several black civil rights groups like the National Action Network and the N.A.A.C.P. have been holding conference calls to form a legislative strategy, the Rev. Al Sharpton said."

• "Cat Brooks, a co-founder of the Anti Police-Terror Project in Oakland, said her group and other leaders in the city were planning to raise money to provide direct services for social programs they feel certain will be cut under a Trump administration and a Republican-controlled Congress. They were making plans, for example, to find ways to offer diabetes testing and counseling if the Affordable Care Act is repealed.""

Yes, this is more about the policies than the person.

This could get dark quickly, so here's something to lighten up a little:
