With Election of Trump as Next US President, Cities Across the Country Rise Up in Protest
The first anti-Trump protests began almost immediately, shortly after election results were announced. In Berkeley and Oakland, hundreds of protesters marched through the streets, spray painting anti-Trump graffiti and lighting garbage fires. Spontaneous protests sprang up in Seattle, Portland, Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, and other cities.

By the evening of November 9, protesters poured into the streets across the country. Even as they rallied and marched in defiance of a Trump presidency, demonstrators were still processing the reality that the next president of the United States will be a narcissistic demagogue who bragged he sexually assaulted women, called for the deportation of millions of immigrants, and proposed banning Muslims from entering the country. Trump's campaign was built on white supremacist and nativist tropes, and he won the election by dominating the white vote, primarily white men. People are pissed — and people of color especially are worried about what is to come.

In many cities, demonstrations continue on a daily or near-daily basis. There is no end in sight as Trump assembles his administration Calls have gone out to disrupt inaugural events on January 20 and for a Women's March on Washington on January 21.
