Protesters took to the streets in at least 10 cities to march against president-elect Donald Trump. An estimated 2,000 protesters shouted angrily in downtown Seattle, WA, expressing their frustration at the Trump victory. In Los Angeles, CA, protesters poured into the streets near City Hall and torched a giant Trump effigy. Later in the night, hundreds marched onto the busy 101 Freeway which brought the highway to a complete standstill. In Washington, D.C., the unrest culminated when two separate anti-Trump demonstrations converged in front of the Trump International Hotel. Protesters chanted and yelled “Impeach Donald Trump” and toward the end yelled at police officers who stood guard at the hotel entrance. In New York City, NY, thousands of demonstrators blocked streets around Trump Tower, and traffic stood at a standstill. In Boston, MA, thousands of anti-Donald Trump protesters streamed through downtown, chanting “Trump’s a racist” and carrying signs that said “Impeach Trump” and “Abolish Electoral College.” An estimated 6,000 protesters gathered Wednesday night in Oakland, CA. Videos on social media captured fires erupting as the protests rolled on.
Across the country, universities and even a few high schools organized post-election civil disobedience of a different sort. Some teachers sent notes to students postponing tests and offering support. Student unions offered sessions of meditation, discussions and tea.
The Boston Latin School, a high school in Boston, offered a support team of guidance counselors, clinicians, and nurses after school Wednesday and before school Thursday for students who need support, according to an email sent to the school community.
