Crowd Gathers at KC City Hall to Protest President-Elect Donald Trump Once Again
Hundreds of people opposed to messages espoused by President-elect Donald Trump gathered to protest his presidency in Kansas City.
Thousands of others across the country also protested in events that mostly were peaceful, with the glaring exception being a protest-related shooting in Portland, Ore., early Saturday morning.
In the shadow of a statue of Abraham Lincoln and his son Tad, a peaceful Kansas City crowd diverse in age, gender and race filled the pavement in front of City Hall on Saturday afternoon. Many protesters waved signs and chanted “Not my president.”
One after another, speakers took a megaphone in hand and begged others to make their voices heard. They complained about discrimination of women, racial minorities and gender variance.
