Anti-Trump Protesters March Through Oakland, Stage Sit-In On Birmingham Bridge

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — In the week since Donald Trump’s win in the presidential election, there have been numerous protest across the country.

Some of those demonstrations have happened right here in Pittsburgh.

Hours after the election, protesters marched through the streets of Oakland. Then, the night after, there was a march in East Liberty; and over the weekend, anti-Trump protesters gathered in Point State Park.

The latest protest happened Wednesday night in Oakland and on the Birmingham Bridge.

According to The Pitt News, dozens of protesters gathered for a sit-in on the bridge. They filled the span, blocking traffic and chanted “United We Stand” and “You Are Loved.”

The demonstrators also marched through Oakland, using chants like “Love Trumps Hate” and “Build Bridges, Not Walls,” The Pitt News reported on their Twitter account.

The Peaceful March of Pittsburgh began at the Cathedral of Learning and ended at Southside Riverfront Park.

  1. KDKA: you reported “dozens of protesters”. Huh? It was hundreds. I joined the march on the bridge and I would estimate the crowd at 200 people or more. I couldn’t see the end of the crowd well, it was so large. Most were college students but some were not. The variety of laudatory causes was impressive: equal rights for blacks, latinos, non-Christians, women, gays, trans people, blacks, immigrants… We believe in “all people are created equal”. We’re worried about a president-elect that has promoted hate against all of those groups. I’m a 58 year old straight white male, resident of Pittsburgh suburbs, homeowner, voter, and unpaid protestor, in case you’re curious.
