Thousands of people gathered in Los Angeles to protest Trump Saturday.
It is the fifth day in a row of protests against Donald Trump's election in the City of Angels. There was around 8,000 people at the protest in Los Angeles that started at MacArthur Park in the Westlake neighborhood and made its way to the federal building downtown. The protest remained peaceful and no arrests were made.
Protestors chanted, "Not my president!" and held signs that read "Make America Safe Again." Signs reflected the anxieties many voters have. LGBT people are afraid Trump will appoint Supreme Court justices who will repeal marriage equality. Sexual assault survivors are afraid that their president is a sexual predator. Women are afraid to have a president who claims he "grabs" women "by the pussy." And gets away with it.
Those anxieties were shown in the signs protestors carried during the miles-long march.
Police had to shut down several on-ramps and off-ramps of the 110 and the 101 freeways because of the demonstrators, reported KABC, a local TV station.
One man who was stuck in traffic for more than 30 minutes because of the march said he didn't mind. "I don't mind being stuck in traffic as long as it's for democracy," Guarav Shenoy, 27, told The Los Angeles Times.
It was a stark contrast from Friday, when local police arrested around 195 protestors in Los Angeles. Law enforcement claimed protestors vandalized property, blocked roads and refused to leave, reported the Times.
