Chicago's 2019 anti-Trump Women's March cancelled over Farrakhan support

At least the organizers had the decency to call off the leftist march over Farrakhan's long history of racism and anti-Semitism

From Haaretz:
The 2019 Women’s March in Chicago has been canceled and previously-scheduled alternative plans have been nixed. The development marks the latest in a series of disruptions in the two-year-old movement following controversies surrounding the support of the national group's leaders for Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan and related allegations of anti-Semitism.

The cancellation of a large scale march was announced several weeks ago by the Women’s March Chicago organization, citing limited "time, money and effort," but in their announcement, they promised “an exciting WMC anniversary action.

The event would have taken place on January 19th - the day marches are set to be held around the country for the third year in protest of U.S. President Donald Trump. Those who wished to participate were told to "stay tuned."
In reality you can stay tuned for dead air. There is no substitute march.
