Protesters took the streets across California on Sunday to oppose a Donald Trump presidency on the fifth day of demonstrations since the election.
In San Francisco, several hundred people marching through downtown blocked traffic when they held a sit-down protest at a busy intersection on Market Street. The nighttime demonstration came after a daytime march from Golden Gate Park to Ocean Beach that drew hundreds of people, including families with children.
Across the bay, thousands formed a human chain around the nearly 3.5-mile perimeter of Oakland's Lake Merritt. Rallies in the city have at times become unruly, but those who came to the lake held hands and chanted, "We reject the president-elect."
"I'm here to show my support for those who are now feeling vulnerable," Emily Reisman, a doctoral student at UC Santa Cruz, told the San Francisco Chronicle.
"It's really a wonderful idea," Reisman said. "The lake is heart shaped. It sends a strong message."
In Sacramento, about 800 people marched from McClatchy Park to Sutter's Fort. They briefly blocked a freeway onramp, but otherwise demonstrated peacefully, the Sacramento Bee reported.
In Los Angeles, a few hundred people gathered outside CNN's office in a peaceful rally, police Officer Norma Eisenman said.
Protester Annamarie Davidson, 28, said she was rallying for the rights of immigrants, Muslims, gay people and other groups she says Trump's campaign marginalized. She said she knows the world is watching and she wants to be "on the right side of history."
On Saturday, an estimated 8,000 marched 4 miles from MacArthur Park to downtown.
In Orange County, a few hundred people marched in Santa Ana and Irvine chanting "love trumps hate" and "not my president."
