Shortly after the results of the 2016 presidential election were called – people took to the streets to protest. Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, but Donald Trump got the most Electoral College votes. Donald Trump was named President-elect. It is pretty easy to see why an election outcome like that one would make the majority of voters upset.
The ACLU points out: The right to join with fellow citizens in protest or peaceful assembly is critical to a functioning democracy and at the core of the first amendment.
In this blog, I have tweeted photos and videos of people who are engaging in their right to peacefully protest. (I also included some Instagram posts that were linked to on Twitter.)
