Thousands took the streets of  New York City at the Trump Is Not My President march marking day 4 of peaceful protests


The Trump Is Not My President march kicked off today at noon in Union Square Park where thousands of New Yorkers have gathered for a fourth consecutive day of peaceful protest and civil disobedience in one of the largest anti-Trump demonstrations since his election on Tuesday, a mass of people marched from Union Square in downtown New York to Trump Tower in midtown.

As President-elect Donald Trump’s administration begins taking shape, thousands took to the streets of a divided nation again Saturday to express their frustration at the stunning election result.

Chants include “He cant build the wall, his hands are too small!” and “Racist, sexist, anti-gay, Donald Trump, go away.” Protesters were also handing out safety pins, as a symbol of solidarity, for attendees to wear.

Protesters made it clear that they weren’t just marching against a Trump presidency, but also against the system that facilitated his rise to power.

Police set up barriers near Trump Tower to prevent protesters from reaching the front of the building, between 56th Street and 57th Street. A large group of protesters also congregated at 57th Street and Fifth Avenue.

Rallies were scheduled throughout the day in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago, where organizers said they hoped to continue the momentum after several nights of demonstrations triggered by the real-estate mogul’s surprise win in Tuesday’s presidential election.

The thousands of protesters in New York on Saturday were joined by similar crowds that swelled in Chicago and Los Angeles. Other demonstrations have taken place in cities like Oakland, Calif.; Baltimore; Kansas City, Mo.; Milwaukee; and Portland, Ore.
