Amy Goodman Interviews Women's March Organizer Linda Sarsour, Now a Target of Islamophobic Attacks

Shortly before the start of Saturday’s historic Women’s March on Washington, Amy Goodman caught up with one of the march co-chairs, Linda Sarsour, a Palestinian-American activist from Brooklyn. After the march, Sarsour became the target of a series of Islamophobic attacks online. On Monday, Sarsour called for "extra prayers" in a Facebook post, writing, "The opposition cannot fathom to see a Palestinian Muslim American woman that resonates with the masses. … They have a coordinated attack campaign against me and it’s vicious and ugly." In response, thousands of people and organizations, including Amnesty International, are showing their support for Sarsour using the hashtag #IMarchWithLinda.
