By some estimates at least 250,000 people turned out for Chicago's iteration of the highly-attended Women's March, which took place all over the country on Saturday in response to Donald Trump's presidential election. But it looks like just one person protested from the Chicago River.

This photo, shared on social media by Kevin Niemi, shows a two lone kayakers, paddling beneath Trump Tower, with a "Fuck Trump" sign. It's not the most creative sign we saw on Saturday, but it certainly gets the point across.

"I think the photo captures how dedicated a lot of Chicagoans' are to letting the Trump administration know that we won't sit back quietly during his tenure," Niemi told Chicagoist. "If they implement legislation that we disagree with, we will let our voices be heard. Even if that means getting on a kayak in the middle of January."

Paddle on.
