CLEVELAND — Crowds gathered in Cleveland Saturday afternoon to take part in an anti-Trump rally.
The event started at 2 p.m. at Market Square, located at West 25th Street and Lorain Avenue.
The protest was part of the Nationwide Day of Action: Demand Trump/Pence Out Now movement that is taking place in various cities across country.
“This election, if there is an election, will be a showdown over the form of rule in this country. Will the Trump/Pence regime hold on to power and be given a “mandate” to violently suppress dissent and criminalize protest? Will a regime that brands as their enemy all those who struggle for a better world – whether for Black lives or the environment or immigrants’ rights – be unleashed to exact revenge aimed at destroying our ability to stand up again? This and worse is unfolding now, and it has a name: fascism,” event organizers said on Facebook.
