Thousands take to the streets to protest Trump win
They chanted anti-Donald Trump slogans. They
flooded city streets. They gathered near the White
House, disheartened and dismayed.

"Not my President, not today," many across the
nation yelled.

In cities from Boston to Los Angeles, thousands of
demonstrators gathered last night in protest of
election results that mean the billionaire real
estate developer will be the next president.

As many as 5,000 people were at a protest in New
York, police estimated. Among the issues being
yelled about outside Trump Tower were immigration
and other controversial topics from the campaign.

"I came out here to let go of a lot of fear that
was sparked as soon as I saw the results,"
protester Nick Powers said. He said he feared
Trump will support stronger stop-and-frisk
policies that would put many people in prison. He
was worried that Trump's victory would embolden
sexist views.

Many of the protests were in cities with large
Democratic bases -- in Atlanta; Austin, Texas;
Boston; Chicago; Denver; Philadelphia; Portland,
Oregon; San Francisco, Seattle and Washington.

In Chicago, people walked down a normally busy
Lake Shore Drive carrying signs. Many headed to
Upper Wacker Drive, where a crowd was growing near
the Trump Tower. CNN's Ryan Young estimated the
throng at a few thousand people covering the
street for half a mile. Many were using a vulgar
chant aimed at the President-elect.

One college student showed CNN a sign that said,
"I still can't believe I have to protest for civil

"It's been really frustrating, because as a nation
we thought we had come so far but it seems like
we're taking many steps back," another woman said,
"so we want to come together to change that and
make sure we keep going forward."

In Portland, marchers chanted "No Trump, no KKK,
no fascist USA" as they trekked through downtown.
Protesters in D.C., who headed to the Trump
International Hotel, shouted the same slogan.
After an earlier solemn gathering at the White
House a few dozen young people remained, their
cries profane.

Hundred of mostly young Latino protesters marched
on Los Angeles City Hall Wednesday night. As the
protest grew throughout the night, protesters set
on fire a piñata depicting the head of

They chanted "I will not live in fear," "Fight
back, stand up" and "¡Si se puede!" (Spanish for
"It can be done").

Several protesters said they feared that family or
friends might be deported once Donald Trump is
sworn into office.
