Tens Of Thousands Of People In SoCal To Protest Friday’s Inauguration Of Donald Trump

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Tens of thousands of demonstrators are expected to take to the streets of Southern California Friday to protest the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump.

On Tuesday night, representatives from some of 90 community groups held a press conference to release details of a march .

It’s unclear exactly how many people will participate on Friday. But organizers expect tens of thousands.

They will be gathering in downtown Los Angeles at Staples Center and making their way to City Hall.

California for Progress is among the groups taking part. “We’re hoping to show the solidarity and unity that’s come out of the last year of progressive action here in California from the marches, rallies and protests,” said Co-Founder Jeremy White. “This is just coming out in support of one another, immigration rights, equity and fairness for all. And we hope to make a big impact.”

Organizers are urging people to skip work, school and not do any shopping to send a message.

But the L.A. Unified School District is urging students to go to school Friday, which the district has declared Unity Day 2017. Officials said schools are a safe place for students to have a meaningful dialogue about the presidential election.

Outside of Los Angeles,  people who live in Long Beach should be aware of rally and march at Harvey Milk Promenade Park from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

In Orange County, another rally is scheduled to be held at the old Orange County Courthouse in Santa Ana.

  1. Mind numbed brainwashed democrat snowflakes. You are embarrassing the state. Conservatives didn’t protest, whine and cry after Obama won the last 2 elections.We sucked up and went on with our lives. If your not a citizen and you voted you broke the law. If your here illegally your breaking the laws of the United States. Go home to wherever you came from. Your opinion is not warranted nor wanted. California is not a country unto itself. It is a part of the union that is the United States of America and must enforce and obey the laws of the Republic. To the Media, Democratic politicians and higher institutes of learning, this is all on you. You are responsible for creating this mess with your misinformation campaigns and propaganda. We are not a democracy but a Representative Republic. Look it up you might learn something. Snowflake protesters, Nothing you say or do is going to change that and believe me we could live under a much worse government and stop believing the Media. They don’t deal in facts or truth. Stay home and watch the inaugural on TV. You can scream, yell and cry all you want and it won’t be intruding on other peoples everyday business. Life will go on believe me.
