Abortion, drone strikes, guns, military spending, unemployment — demonstrators highlighting these issues and more are expected for President Obama's inaugural parade, though perhaps the most visible of the planned protests will be made by D.C. government officials outside city hall.
"The goal of it is to bring attention to issues that have been ignored or minimized by the Obama administration and the Congress," said organizer Joan Stallard, 71.
"We were carefully supportive four years ago because Obama represented the hope for important change," she said. "The expectation this time around is we've seen what happened and we can see that we need to get much more forceful in demanding the kind of America that we had been promised."
