For the third night New York rallies against Donald Trump Presidency
In the third day since Donald Trump was elected president, Anti-Trump protests have erupted for a third night in a row in New York. New Yorkers gathered in Washington Square Park for a “love rally” and moved up Sixth Avenue to Union Square. Some marched through Midtown to protest at Trump Tower.
An estimated 4,000 demonstrators gathered in Washington Square Park, huge numbers of young people. Many of them women to stand in solidarity with the groups that President-elect Donald Trump demonized, ridiculed and threatened during his run for the White House. It was part protest, part support group.
Demonstrators are determined to send a message to America’s next president and the people who elected him.
The crowd shouted during the rally chants as “Not my president!” “We reject the president-elect!” “No Donald Trump, no KKK, no racist USA!”
Then the crowd got specific, shouting their disapproval of Trump’s stances on social issues, as well as the stances of Vice President-elect Mike Pence.
“Bridges not walls,” they chanted, in reference to Trump’s plan to build a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border to stop unauthorized immigrants. “Hand too small, can’t build a wall.”
The women in the crowd shouted “My body, my choice,”, referencing Pence’s anti-abortion stance. “Her body, her choice,” the men shouted back.
Anti-Trump protest say they are preparing for a long fight.
