Radical groups congregated in downtown Chicago Saturday to resist a Trump presidency by any means necessary.
The rally, which started at noon in Federal Plaza downtown and proceeded in front of the Trump Tower, was organized by the Chicago branch of Act Now to Stop War and End Racism (ANSWER), a radical leftist group which supports socialism, open borders, and a single Palestinian state.
ANSWER has been organizing anti-Trump protests following the election in cities like Chicago, New York, Washington, D.C., San Francisco, and Albuquerque. The group is also planning a “mass rally” on inauguration day.
“We came out here today and we’ve been coming out here all week to make one thing very clear — Donald Trump better not come to Chicago is not welcome in Chicago,” Jon Beacham, an ANSWER organizer told the crowd to thunderous applause saying later. “We have to resist Trump.”
