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.

Morning show gives airtime to panel of white ‘Karens’ who blame Black Lives Matter for making name a slur
A British TV news program gave airtime to a panel of white women named Karen who say they have been unfairly maligned.
In a segment on Monday, ITV's Morning Show talked to three women about "memes" that use their name as a slur.
"I just noticed a few memes and TikToks going on and it started of being quite funny," Karen Masters told the program. "And when the Black Lives Matter protests started, there was a lot of media putting Karen as racist. It sort of took on a life of its own."
"And I feel that we can't, as Karens, now talk about how it's affecting us because we are told that we're entitled if we do this," she continued. "So I set up a Change.org [petition] to show that this is not fair for us to have to put up with this."

‘You should have reported it’: James Clyburn scolds Fox News host over white supremacists inciting violence
House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) on Sunday accused Fox News host Pete Hegseth of failing to report that white supremacists had attempted to incite violence during Black Lives Matter protests in Portland, Oregon and other places.
"As you know, over the last couple of months, we've seen riots in Portland," Hegseth told Clyburn during an interview on Fox & Friends. "President Trump made it clear, we're going to send federal agents, law enforcement officers there to protect federal property as necessary."
The Fox News host went on to accuse Clyburn of comparing federal agents to "the Gestapo."
