Tens of thousands of protesters took to the streets in seven major U.S. cities on Wednesday night to denounce President-elect Donald Trump. The protests were created by a number of groups, including college campus, socialist and other organizations.


Demonstrators in New York have shut down traffic by Fifth Avenue and East 57th Street, near the heavily policed Trump Tower. The group started at 14th Street and walked more than 40 blocks north to the billionaire’s residence and business headquarters.

In Chicago, an “emergency protest” lured thousands of people to the city’s Trump Tower. At one point, protesters filled all six lanes of North Michigan Avenue, disabling cars from passing through the streets.

Bostonians organized outside the Massachusetts Statehouse to chant “we will not be silenced.” Many in Boston and other cities toted signs, reading, “Not my president.”
