An anti-Trump group called for nationwide protests on Saturday -- seeking to fuel the left-wing protests that have roiled the country throughout the summer.
The left-wing group “Refuse Fascism” was organizing nationwide events, in places like New York City, Cleveland, Philadelphia and the Hatfield Courthouse in Portland -- where protests and riots have hit the federal property for more than 100 days.
Hundreds gathered at Federal Plaza in Chicago Saturday afternoon, escorted by dozens of police officers.
Some wore Trump masks and some held signs that read, "Flush the turd." Other signs read "Trump/Pence out now," while some speakers said they won't wait until November to remove the Trump administration from power.
“We must make a living declaration to the world that we are uniting, we are organizing, we are determined, we are preparing to struggle with all we’ve got, starting now and not stopping until the Trump/Pence regime is driven from power and its fascist program brought to a halt," Andy Zee, Refuse Fascism spokesperson, told WBBM 780 Radio.
