Protests against Donald Trump winning the US Presidency broke out yesterday not only in major US cities but in Hanover. Yesterday afternoon over 300 Dartmouth students, faculty and Upper Valley community members joined in a “Walk for Love and Justice”. The event was a protest against President Elect Donald J. Trump.
Alyssa Jorgensen ’17 and Ashley Zepeda ’18 and others organized the event. The march began at the Green following a sit in where on Tuesday night students had camped out and held a sit in. The protest started with about 100 and ended up with a crowd of about 300.
Protesters shouted “Love trumps hate,” “No justice no peace,” “F#ck Donald Trump” and “Black Lives Matter.” Demonstrators occupied the right lane of Main Street and brought traffic to a standstill on Main Street.
