    Demonstrators gathered in San Diego Saturday to "March for Truth," a nationwide effort to demand an impartial investigation into the allegations of Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election.

    San Diego is just one of the 135 cities nationwide that participated in the demonstration, which includes a coalition of organizers, activists, and progressives demanding more action to be taken on looking into the alleged Trump-Russia collusion.

    Organizers say they're demanding an independent commission and the release of President Trump’s tax returns to show potential Russia entanglements. Demonstrators also want as much information made available to the public on the hot-button topic, as soon as it becomes available.

    Supporters of the March for Truth include longer-established progressive groups like MoveOn and the Working Families Party, along with newer ones founded in response to Trump's election like Swing Left, Flippable and the TownHall project.

    "Across the country, constituents have flooded town halls to let their representatives know that they want impartial investigations into Russian interference in our elections," said Jimmy Dahman, executive director of Town Hall Project. "Transparency is critical to the democratic process, and we are proud to partner with the #MarchForTruth in holding Congress accountable to the people that elected them."

    The San Diego March for Truth Rally took place on Saturday at 11 a.m. at East Mission Bay Drive.
