The Women’s March on Washington officially received a permit from D.C. police for its planned 200,000-person march the day after President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration, according to a Thursday report from The Washington Post.

The group originally applied for the right to gather in front of the Lincoln Memorial, but the National Park Service has yet to consider the application. The group will march on a new path from Capitol Hill down Independence Avenue to the White House.

The official permit states that the group will then disperse in front of the White House after the march is completed. The head of logistics for the group of protesters filed for an application of 200,000 attendees.

Several protests have been staged in the District of Columbia after Trump won the White House in November, and all were underwhelming compared to protests in cities like Chicago and New York City.

Supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders staged a march in late November, according to the group’s press release, which said “arrests are anticipated” in the press package. The actual group was reportedly smaller, and dispersed well before it was supposed to. The group of protesters reportedly went to eat during the middle of the protest.
