Massive Unrest Follows Trump "Victory"

In the wake of Donald Trump's so-called "win" last Tuesday, nearly every major city in the U.S. and around the world saw many countless citizens take to the streets in stern opposition to a Trump regime. Numerous cities including Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Dallas, Miami, Atlanta, Oakland, Oklahoma City, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, Dayton, Springfield, and Philadelphia have all been rocked by massive anti-Trump protests every day since Trump's electoral college "victory" over Hillary Clinton last Tuesday.    

Anti-Trump demonstrations continued over the weekend. NYC alone saw tens of thousands of citizens shut down 5th Ave. and surround the Trump Tower on Saturday. Sunday saw continued sustained protests against Trump in NYC, L.A., Philly, etc. as well as cities in Mexico and Germany.  Here in Portland, OR *aka* Little Beirut, street actions and clashes with riot cops have been on-going every day since November 8th. Many dozens of peaceful activists have been arrested between Wednesday and Saturday, as acts of non-violent civil disobedience were met with gestapo tactics by Portland riot pigs. One anti-Trump protester was reportedly shot by two men in a car on the Morrison bridge early Saturday morning. And on Saturday night, 71 citizens were arrested, following a fifth night of clashes with the Portland Police Gestapo(PPG). On multiple nights, including Saturday night, militarized Portland cops fired flashbang/stun grenades and tear gas at non-violent protesters. The atmosphere Sunday was more calm, as several hundred citizens held a march and vigil at Pioneer Square. For the first time in six days, no street action-related arrests had been reported on Portland.

It is worth noting that as repugnant as she is, Hillary R. Clinton did indeed win the popular vote on Election night. Clinton did concede defeat early on, Tuesday night, even as all the voted hadn't yet been counted. Now it appears that Clinton's margin over Trump may be even bigger than previously thought.
