After thousands of people took to the streets across the country on Saturday to display dissent for Donald Trump's election, many more demonstrations were planned and expected to occur on Sunday — the fifth straight day of protests, NBC News reported.
Organizers have created Facebook events to help coordinate anti-Trump protesters in a number of large cities, including New York City, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Oakland and San Francisco as well as smaller cities such as Springfield, Massachusetts; Erie, Pennsylvania; Fort Lauderdale, Florida and New Haven, Connecticut.
Thousands of accounts on Facebook have indicated interest in joining these protests.
According to New York City police, an estimated 25,000 turned out in New York City on Saturday. They chanted phrases such as: "We reject the president-elect." Protests were also held in Los Angeles, Washington, D.C.; Las Vegas; Miami; Birmingham, Alabama, and Fresno, California, among others.
Police in Portland, Oregon, used tear gas and "diversionary bang devices" to make 19 arrests on Saturday during an "unpermitted" march, police said. This comes a day after a protester was shot in a confrontation with an individual on a bridge. Two suspects were arrested in connection with the shooting.
