Activists in Ohio protest presidential election results
CLEVELAND (AP) — Several dozen activists rallied in downtown Cleveland to protest Donald Trump’s election as the next U.S. president.
The small rally of less than 100 people on Cleveland’s Public Square on Wednesday included individuals concerned with LGBT rights, reproductive rights and environmentalism, among other issues. The demonstrators took turns using a megaphone to air their views about the election results and their dislike of Trump.
No violence was reported in the rally that lasted about an hour before some protesters began marching through the city, chanting anti-Trump messages. Activists ended their march back at Cleveland State University’s campus.
The Cleveland protest was small compared with demonstrations taking place nationwide Wednesday in cities like Chicago, New York City and Washington, D.C.
