Fresh VIDEO: Thousands of Anti-Trump Protesters Take over Washington DC Streets
Thousands of protesters demonstrated against US President-elect Donald Trump in downtown Washington on Thursday evening, just hours before his inauguration as the 45th President of the United States.

Chanting “We refuse a fascist America” and calling both Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence “illegitimate,” protesters took over the K Street corridor just blocks away from the White House.

One the protesters cried: “Hey, why are you here?” Protester: “Why am I here? I’m here because I just can’t; you know, they go through so many extraordinary measures to make sure that they keep the LGBT community down; that they make sure people’s rights to healthcare aren’t accessed; to make sure women don’t have their right to choose or what happens over their bodies...so I need to be here and fight against that rhetoric and to fight against that mindset. You know, all women...we can’t live in a free society where more than half of women are being oppressed by this system.”

Other chanting slogans among the protesters were:  “We will not accommodate. We will not conciliate. We will not collaborate. We will not collaborate. We will rise up.”
