On Friday, November 11th, hundreds of people gathered in Old Town to protest the newly elected president. This rally was called “Love Trumps Hate”.
Protests and rallies have been seen across the United States since the election, many of them also being called “Love Trumps Hate”. One of the largest influences of this movement has been Lady Gaga, a known Hillary supporter. Gaga has been seen wearing clothes with this saying.
Accompanying the “Love Trumps Hate” protest, there was also a protest for trump supporters. The goal of this group was to gain the public’s attention by being peaceful. The wanted to let everybody know that they were not against them. This group was much smaller than the other protest.
Police joined the two groups, as there was trouble predicted. However, both groups stayed mostly calm through the evening.
