Hundreds of protesters returned to the Loop for a second week of protests against Donald Trump's election as U.S. president and the advisor appointments he's made.
The marchers met at Federal Plaza Saturday afternoon and marched around downtown Chicago. Many carried signs that said "Black Lives Matter" and other social justice rallying cries that are not about Trump. Others explicitly focused on Trump's presidency and the rhetoric of violence, racism, xenophobia and misogyny that he has come to represent in this country. Another sign which read "We are not creating a divide, we are simply pointing it out," hinted at the criticism some protesters in Chicago and around the country have faced for the way they've chosen to resist Trump's election.
One young child held a sign that simply said "Donald Trump is mean."
There are more protests plans for the coming week, including several protests around the city Sunday—some explicitly about Trump, others about police brutality and efforts to stand up to racism.
