YES! Pence Met with RESISTANCE in Philly

Taking a cue from Texas badasses, protesters turned up in Philly to send a pointed message to Vice President Mike Pence:

@vp @mike.pence visited #Philly on Monday to stump for @reploubarletta. He was met with the resistance. . This time, protesters donned garments from the popular book and show “The Handmaid’s Tale.” . “We just felt that the visual of the Handmaid’s Tale costumes, a society in which women in Gilead are stripped of their most basic rights and their humanity, was appropriate,” said Samantha Goldman, an organizer of the protest and member of @refusefascismphilly. . This wasn’t the first time protesters gathered while Pence was in town. When he was in Philly last month, protesters gathered at Rittenhouse Square to protest Trump’s policy on separating families at the border. . 📸 by @hkhalifa @davidmaialetti @morenojosepr / Staff #Philly #philadelphia #mikepence #vp #protest #resistance
