On Monday, Americans took to the streets in cities across the country for the Not My President’s Day Rally, an organized demonstration against Donald Trump. The nationwide marches were inspired by an event created by a group of activists right here in Los Angeles.
No official crowd estimate is available, though according to USA Today, at least 1,000 concerned individuals turned out to gather on the steps of City Hall with their placards held high. In addition to the Downtown L.A. event, affiliated rallies also took place in Pasadena, Anaheim, Santa Barbara and San Diego. Take a look below at some photos from the rally in L.A.
The Not My President’s Day Rally followed a demonstration on Friday for immigrant rights and a month of frequent demonstrations. With many more protests scheduled, many timed to coincide with other symbolic dates including International Women’s Day, tax season and Earth Day, it seems likely that the momentum of sending the politically active into the streets is going to keep up for the foreseeable future.
