Nellie McKay
Planned Parenthood Rally - Foley Square

The ‘Stand Up For Women’s Health’ rally went down in Foley Square this afternoon (2/26), from 1-3pm. According to a post-event press release,

On Saturday, February 26, thousands of people came together in Foley Square, in downtown Manhattan, to stand up for women’s health, and fight back against the recent Congressional attacks against Planned Parenthood and family planning funding.

The rally comes on the heels of passage of dangerous anti-choice legislation in the House of Representatives, which, if made into law,
would eliminate basic health care and education services for millions of Americans – and according to Department of Health estimates, 800,000 New Yorkers.

Nellie McKay and John Darnielle played two songs each at the event. Lots of politicians spoke. More pictures, videos and the full speaker/performer list by minute (the setlist), below….
