Protests continue for second straight night in downtown San Antonio

Protests in America: San Antonio

Hundreds of San Antonians are gathering downtown for the second straight night on Saturday to protest Donald Trump.

More people are expected than the group that marched on Friday. They plan to stay out until 9:30 p.m. or so.

Like many of the protests around the country, the one in San Antonio focuses on inclusion, condemning what protesters claim is a pattern of homophobia, racism, Islamophobia, and misogyny from President-elect Donald Trump.

The protests also come amid growing fears of violence from demonstrations around the country. Some people participating in the protests in Portland, Oregon have become unruly the past two nights with violence as well as damage to public property breaking up an otherwise peaceful demonstration.

Organizers in San Antonio say that they won’t tolerate such behavior.

Friday’s protest saw a similar gathering at the Alamo which, despite some loud chants and high energy, remained peaceful.
