More than 4,000 protestors marched around Wayne State’s campus on Jan. 21, the day after the inauguration, to protest President Donald Trump in solidarity with the Women’s March on Washington.
The WSU Police Department and the Detroit Police Department were on site to block off roads for the protests, and many in the crowd thanked and shook hands with officers along the route. Dressed in the pink “pussy hats” which have come to be a symbol of the protest, hundreds carried handmade signs with slogans like “free abortions,” “love is love” and “Trump hates taco Tuesdays.”
Protesters chanted against President Trump and his cabinet members with calls including “Betsy DeVos is not our boss!” and “when they go low, we go high!” during the roughly two-hour march.
