Trump Protests Planned In New York City

By amNewYork, New York

Two years after President Donald Trump’s inauguration, New Yorkers who oppose his policies and rhetoric continue to show their resistance.

Demonstrations against the Trump administration have come in all shapes and sizes: protests, rallies and marches, sit-ins, die-ins and banners unfurled at the Statue of Liberty.

Although Trump Tower has been a favorite of protesters, demonstrations have taken place across the city, including at Trump International Hotel and Tower, Stonewall National Monument, Battery Park, Tompkins Square Park, Washington Square Park, Times Square and outside Kennedy Airport.

Protests have also taken place on several occasions when Trump has returned to the city. In September 2017, three congressional Democrats and then-City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito were arrested during a DACA rally outside Trump Tower.

Here’s a look at upcoming demonstrations and protests planned in the city — and what their organizers say about the events.

No to Fake Emergency

When: Today, at 5 p.m.

Where: Union Square Park, Manhattan

“The emergency is in the White House (or as it would seem today on the golf course), not on the border! Join your brothers and sisters in dozens of activist groups in a show of rebellion against this fake national emergency. #DonTheCon must be stopped. Show up!”
