Thousands March In Minneapolis To Protest Trump Inauguration
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Thousands of protesters have marched in Minneapolis to demonstrate against the inauguration of Republican President Donald Trump.
The Resist from Day One Coalition says various Twin Cities groups marched Friday to reject what the coalition calls "the Trump administration's hateful agenda."
A crowd that police estimated at 2,000 ended the march with a rally on the Hennepin County Government Center plaza in downtown Minneapolis. Some protesters threw fireworks or briefly stopped light-rail trains with smoke canisters, but no one was arrested or hurt.
The coalition says students walked out of classes at the University of Minnesota, Augsburg College and at high schools to join the march.
Police say at one point the protesters burned a mannequin in south Minneapolis.
A protest also was held in St. Cloud for Inauguration Day.
