'Not my President’s Day’ protests against Trump across US

Activists opposed to President Donald Trump gathered across the US for protests dubbed “Not my President’s Day” on a federal holiday commemorating the birthday of George Washington.

Monday protests were scheduled to happen in 29 cities, including New York, Chicago and Los Angeles.

Opposition of President Trump and his administration’s policies has centered on women’s reproductive rights, immigration and climate change.

“A lot of people are angry because he lost the popular vote and is ruling like somebody who won by a landslide,” Ogla Lexell, who along with 20 others helped organize the rallies in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago, told CNN.

She said the rallies are intended to “keep the momentum” between the massive attendance at the Women’s March last month and the upcoming Tax Day March on April 15.

Portland

About 300 people turned up for the anti-Trump rally in Portland, but police clashed with the group early on as protesters blocked the street.

Portland Police Bureau said the traffic blockage was not permitted and anyone who failed to return to the sidewalk would be arrested.

Another Portland event began at Director Park at noon, and police said organizers did have a permit for street closure.

 

 

Chicago

Downtown Chicago saw hundreds rally across the Chicago River from Trump Tower.

 

Chants included “Love – not hate – makes America great!”

Philadelphia

Among the demonstrations in the city of brotherly love, a rally at Thomas Paine Plaza turned into a march to Independence Mall and back.

 

Washington, DC

Hundreds rallied in DC’s Dupont Circle before marching.

 

 

In Washington, DC, people chanted “This is what Democracy looks like!” while another group chanted “They attack one of us; they attack all of us.”

New York

Thousands made it to Columbus Circle, near the Trump International Hotel and Tower, and the crowd reportedly wrapped around 13 blocks before police dispersed them.

 

 

While we acknowledge that Donald Trump holds the current title, the policies he’s trying to put in place are not the beliefs shared by the majority of the people,” Nova Calise, a television producer and one of the organizers of New York event told KGW. “We do not accept Donald Trump as our president because he does not represent us.”

Los Angeles

Hundreds turned out to City Hall’s steps to protest Trump.

 

Among the chants heard in the LA protest was, “No ban, no wall, sanctuary for all!”

Atlanta

“No ban, no wall!” was also a popular chant in Atlanta, Georgia, where protesters gathered in front of City Hall.

 

Supporters from around the world joined in staging their own rallies. Thousands rallied in London, while two dozen protesters met in the Orkney Islands to send postcards to President Trump.

    There are so many people in high places about to be taken low that they lash out desperately to deflect attention and hope people like Soros can finance the take-down of President Trump. Of course there are other factors and forces at play – anti-democratic in nature and anti-America by intent to nurture the bottom-feeders of the festering swamp that is Washington. The fools cannot see they are being manipulated to nefarious ends and the prolongation of crippling exploitation of the true citizens of America – whatever about the facade of foreign claims to their native inheritance – jobs, education, housing, health by illegals and those pursuing legal channels for inclusion in the American Dream, that Utopian realization, which the late, lamented comedian George Carlin rightly suggested requires nothing more than the medium of sleep.

    Double-face Janus situation. No protests against wars, but enough $$$ to make protests inside.

    These people are protesting – reproduction rights, immigration and climate change? What happened to protesting Wars, bombing civilians, economy, spending trillions of dollars on BS instead of – spending trillions on the homeland – not Homeland Security- ? I think the World is watching all this Protesting but hasn’t figured out why the US Protesters, don’t protest the Wars and the Global Empirical BS. It looks like the American people need to get their priorities straightened out and focus on the real threats here ! Oh ya – its hard to focus on reality when the TV, and msm is Programming you.

    Local sheriff elections and judge elections can have a noticeable impact on your lifestyle. Some police protect your free speech, and others can’t wait to shoot people.
