PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Hundreds of protesters, including parents with children in strollers, are protesting Donald Trump’s presidential win near Philadelphia’s City Hall.
About 300 protesters had gathered by 5:30 p.m. Thursday, and the crowd was building. They held signs bearing slogans like “Not Our President,” ”Trans Against Trump” and “Make America Safe For All.”
Twenty-three-year-old Jeanine Feito held a sign reading “Not 1 More Deportation.” The Cuban-American Temple University student says she acknowledges Trump as president-elect but doesn’t accept it.
People passed Dixie cups holding candles in a vigil that organizers say is meant to provide a place to “mourn, grieve and be in community together.”
The crowd rallied with calls and responses, including “We must remember to love ourselves and each other” and “not our president.”
