Protesters have rallied in the streets of cities across the United States to demand the impeachment of President Donald Trump, and at least two people have been arrested.

The protests organized by RefuseFascism were held on Saturday in at least 20 locations, including Atlanta, New York City, New Jersey, Chicago, Phoenix, Washington, Boston, Portland and Los Angeles.

RefuseFascism, a vocal opponent of the Trump administration, is calling for an end to the Trump-Pence administration.

“The Trump/Pence Regime daily escalates its fascist attacks on immigrants and Muslims, on healthcare and the poor, on Black and Brown people, on women and LGBTQ folks, on the media, on the environment, on the right to protest, on the truth,” the organizers stated on their Facebook account.

In New York City, the activists first gathered outside the Trump Tower and then marched toward Times Square and 9th Avenue, chanting slogans such as “No Trump, No KKK, No fascist USA.”

In Atlanta, demonstrators congregated at the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site and marched along Atlanta's Beltline.

In Hollywood, Los Angeles, where at least 2 people were arrested, rallies were held by both supporters and opponents of Trump.
