This is What Democracy Looks Like

Thousands of protestors marched down Fifth Avenue today, marking it the fourth day of continuous anti-Trump protests in New York.

Across the boroughs, New Yorkers voted overwhelmingly for Clinton (almost 80% in Brooklyn,  close to 90% on Manhattan and Bronx).

Given these numbers it’s understandably that Trump’s surprising success left many New Yorkers looking for ways to show their anger. Or just a place to meet likeminded people.

“This makes me so happy,” said one woman in her twenties looking around the march. All around, there was a tremendous amount of positive energy, and the march didn’t only serve as an expression of free speech and political will, it also was like a big therapy session.

It was the first time many New Yorkers felt okay again all week.

Love trumps hate.

No hate. No fear.

This is what democracy looks like.

Racist, sexist, anti-gay, Donald Trump go away.

We are the popular vote.

Climate change is real. Protect the EPA.
