Photos from Albuquerque Airport tonight

I now live in the middle of NM, but I lived for yrs in Albuquerque. Many of my Albuquerque friends marched today and posted pics.

3. ABQ is a super tiny airport

This must have really disrupted the flow of traffic. Hee, hee!

5. Not that small

Planes controlled include military aircraft. Kirtland. More traffic than O'Hare. Granted little civilian traffic and by the way it is 200 ft higher than Denver's airport!

6. Compared to JFK

DFW, Dulles, O'Hare.

I used to live in Albuquerque and have flow in and out of ABQ a few times. It always seemed so tiny in comparison to the airports I was connecting with. The point is, though, that this protest is spreading to all airports, not just JFK. I'm proud that the people of Albuquerque are taking this seriously.

7. Off topic

But in terms of both operations and passenger count, Albuquerque doesn't come close to O'Hare.

14. That's what I thought

How could it be compared to O'Hare?
I live in Albuquerque. Been here 15 years.
People tell me ABQ has the best newspaper, zoo, restaurants, everything.
But when I ask where they've been for comparison, most say they've never traveled outside N.M.

8. I live in Albuquerque but did not hear about it

but then I don't do facebook or twitter. Would have liked to participate even though tired
from skiing this afternoon. Great to see my city step up to the tyrants in the WH.

13. I found out about it on Facebook

KRQE (local radio station) said nearly 2 thousand protesters. It was posted this morning on Facebook to meet at Yale and Gibson at 4:45 and march to the Albuquerque Sunport. Lots of protesters for short notice.

Albuquerque and Santa Fe both had high turnouts for the Women's March. I marched in Santa Fe and some estimates had the Santa Fe march at 10 to 13 thousand people. Santa Fe has a population around 70 thousand so that is a high percentage of people marching.

9. Fantastic!

Love Albuquerque! Missed my reunion last summer due to very poorly timed illness. Still hoping to get back there to see folks, reunion or otherwise.

Way to go, ABQ!

11. My boyfriend was protesting at the San Fransico air port yesterday and said there were

thousands. Public transportation was stopped to the airport.

12. You Go, ABQ!

I live about 4 hours away from Albuquerque myself, and I'm delighted at the way people in the SW part of our country have joined in the current patriotic uprisings. I live in a small town of 8,000 souls in conservative, rural Colorado. But last week 500 people from my town turned up to march in solidarity with the woman's march in DC despite the fact that we were having the heaviest snowstorm so far this winter and people were sometimes walking thru 2 feet of snow. If our Comrade Dictator keeps it up, we actually might end up being a united country again!
