Small crowd protests Trump victory near NYS Capitol

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – People upset with the results of the presidential election shared their voices with protests and rallies across the country, including in the Capital Region.

A small protest broke out in downtown Albany on Thursday. They marched around the Capitol. Some held signs and chanted “Love Trumps Hate.”

One protestor told NEWS10 she came out to show she’s not happy with Donald Trump as president-elect. She said all social change starts with people speaking out for what they believe in.

“He’s racist. He’s homophobic. He’s xenophobic. He’s Islamaphobic. He’s a misogynist,” Meghan Wall, of South Glens Falls, said. “I can’t accept that. I can’t accept that as a representation of this country because that’s not what it’s about.”

Other organizations and groups plan to hold protests and rallies by the Capitol and in other nearby cities through the next week.
