Slowly, but surely New York is waking up from it’s collective moment of shock and mourning.
In the meantime, many New Yorkers are tacking actions and protesting Trump and the values he stands for. And even though Trump doesn’t seem to agree, peaceful demonstrations and marches are a powerful tool of democracy. So keep them coming!
Today – Saturday – two demonstrations are leaving Union Square to march to Trump Tower. One at noon, one at 9pm.
Meet you at Union Sq. at 12pm and march to Trump Tower (725 5th Ave) at 2pm.
Divided is the reason we just fell. We must unite despite our differences to stop HATE from ruling the land.
This is a peaceful protest. Violence/vandalism will not be tolerated
Exercise your right to free speech and PEACEFUL protest at Union Square Park this Saturday starting at 9pm! At 10 pm we will head to Trump Tower to join other protesters.
There is another protest earlier in the day, this is an opportunity for those who cannot make it to join in the fight.
This is not about hate and anger- lets use our anger and frustration to show that our right to protest can make a difference when we do it the right way. No matter your reason for fighting back, make it there and make it known.
This is Bernie Sanders speaking to thousands of people at a rally at Washington Square Park in Manhattan tonight.
This is how far I made it.
I mean look at these lines. And then imagine them entering trough two tiny Secret Service tents.
It’s the logistical nightmare you get, when you plan a rally in Manhattan in a park with a huge construction site on top of it. Oh well.
But then, who needs to see the real Bernie Sanders when you can have this?

It’s official, the election craze has reached New York City.
Bernie Sanders opened his first New York office on Saturday – with a big block party in Brooklyn.
And Hillary Clinton kick-started her Big Apple-campaign with a rally at the famous Apollo in Harlem today.
“Hillary is no stranger here. And she’s no stranger to the people of New York. We know her, we love her, and we can’t wait for her to be president.” – Chuck Schuemer, introducing his former Senate colleague Hillary Clinton
It’s twenty days until the New York primary, so we will see a lot more of the candidates in the next weeks.
