With Presidential Election results still undecided, Americans are marching in solidarity across the country to ensure every vote is counted.
Earlier Wednesday morning, November 4, President Trump and his team announced lawsuits against the states of Michigan and Pennsylvania to require that they stop counting votes, votes that were from mail-in ballots and are completely legitimate. Americans then began gathering in other cities like NYC, Chicago, and Washington D.C. to seek justice and demand that the voices of Americans be heard and tallied in this historic election.
According to social media posts, Philadelphians joined together in front of City Hall and marched peacefully across the city to Independence Mall, with signs that read “Count Every Vote. Every Vote Counts” and “Black Lives Matter.”
Crowds were led by US Representative Dwight Evans in a unified chorus of “every vote counts,” while CeaseFire Pa. director Adam Garber, who usually focuses on reducing gun violence in Philadelphia, said leaving some ballots uncounted is another form of violence.
The march also coincided with the release of footage of Walter Wallace’s killing and locals continued to march on to Mayor Kenney’s residence in Old City chanting the names of those who have been killed by the police.
Votes in Pennsylvania are taking longer than usual to process because it’s the state’s first time receiving mass mail voting. Counties were not permitted to count any ballots before Election Day and are still accepting ballots through Friday as long as they’re postmarked by Tuesday.
