Anti-Trump demonstrations continue nationally and worldwide, as thousands of protesters took the streets across the U.S. over the weekend. In New York City, activists, flanked by a marching band and carrying a casket, staged a New Orleans-style mock funeral for the presidency. In Washington, D.C., LGBT protesters kissed each other outside Trump’s hotel to protest the anti-LGBT policies of Trump’s administration. Crowds also took to the streets in Chicago, Dallas, Minneapolis, along the U.S.-Mexico border and in Los Angeles to oppose Trump’s crackdown against immigration and immigrants currently living in the United States.

Protester: “Well, the fact that my mom was—is an immigrant currently, and I just feel like I need to do this for her, so that she gets the rights she needs, because this whole time she’s working hard to provide for us, and of course she is part of this country, just like all of us. And I’m here fighting for her and my father.”
