Thousands across the nation are marching, continuing what is now the sixth day of anti-Trump protests.
Protests are taking place in cities such as New York, Los ANgeles, Philadelphia, Oakland, California, San Francisco, Springfield, and New Haven among countless others. Many organizers have taken to Facebook to organize followers and events.
It is estimated that over 25,000 people turned out just in New York City on Saturday, chanting “We reject the president-elect.”
71 arrests were made in Portland, Oregon, where police utilized tear gas and “diversionary bang devices.”
180 arrests were made in Los Angeles, 3 in Indianapolis, and 2 in New York City, though most of the protests remained peaceful.

From Democracy Now!:
Over the weekend, protests around the world voiced opposition to U.S. President-elect Donald Trump’s campaign promises to restrict immigration and register Muslims, and allegations that he sexually abused women. Demonstrations in the United States took place in Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Oakland, Chicago, Oklahoma City, Salt Lake City, Springfield, Massachusetts, Dayton and Cincinnati, Ohio, several cities in Florida, New York and Philadelphia, where a Mexican immigrant who is the father of three U.S.-born children entered sanctuary in a church on Sunday and called on President Obama to stop his deportation and others’. We feature voices from Sunday’s march of an estimated 10,000 people in New York, which marked the fifth straight day of protests against Trump in his home town.
