Following the result of a nightmarish election on November 8, New Yorkers are taking to the streets in protest of President-Elect Donald Trump.
The crowd met at Union Square in Manhattan on Wednesday night at 6 p.m. ET and planned to take the protest to Trump Tower. Thousands took to the streets, not only in protest of the new president, but also against everything he has stood for.
A Facebook page that shared word of the protest hosted by Socialist Alternative NYC wrote that “the Democratic party has failed.”
The page also noted that Wednesday’s rally would be an intersectional movement against mass deportations of undocumented immigrants, for Black Lives Matter, against the Dakota Access Pipeline, a fight against rape culture and attacks on women, and in opposition to an elite class.

WATCH: 16-year-old Greta Thunberg rebukes GOPer who thinks other countries must solve climate change
Greta Thunberg, a 16-year-old Swedish climate activist, faced off with members of Congress on Wednesday.
In a hearing before the House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis, Thunberg declined to submit a written opening statement.
"I don’t want you to listen to me, I want you to listen to the scientists and I want you to unite behind the science,” she said.
Republican Rep. Garret Graves of Louisiana tried to make the point that the U.S. should not curb its carbon emissions until other countries agreed to do so.
"Let me ask you a question," Graves said. "If you were sailing across the ocean and you were picking up trash along the way and for every one piece of trash you pick up, there's a boat right next to you dumping out five pieces, how would that make you feel?"
‘You need to go’: White woman screaming about abortion gets pulled away by cops for heckling black speaker
Conservative activist Kaitlin Bennett was escorted away by police after she tried to interrupt a liberal speaker.
The incident, which was caught on video, appeared to take place in Houston prior to last week's Democratic presidential debate. The video was later posted online by The Blaze's Elijah Schaffer, who was sympathetic to the right-wing heckler.
The video shows a speaker, who is black, talking about systemic racism.
"They have found ways to cage our babies, separate families, mistreat and abuse us," the woman says before she was interrupted by Bennett.
"What about abortion?" Bennett exclaims.
