Anti-Trump Protestors Take to the Streets Wednesday Night [Photos]


For the second night in a row, anti-Trump protestors took to the streets Wednesday night to share their dismay over a Trump administration.

Chants of "Dump Trump" and "Pussy grabs back" could be heard echoing from Market Street in San Francisco to downtown Oakland to Sproul Plaza in Berkeley, where organizers reminded the crowd that the rest of the United States relies on the Bay Area to let their voices be heard.

In Oakland, over 7,000 people congregated near Frank Ogawa Plaza (also referred to as Oscar Grant Plaza), and police officers deployed tear gas multiple times on the crowd to stop protestors from throwing bottles, rocks and firecrackers. Oakland police arrested 30 protesters and cited 11 others and extinguished about 40 fires at the end of the night. Three officers were also injured at the protest.

In San Francisco, a smaller crowd of marchers started on Powell Street made their way through the Castro, then to the Mission District. At Harvey Milk Plaza in the Castro, a quiet demonstration of people gathered with candles.
