WASHINGTON, D.C. (EETV) – Just hours after Donald Trump was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States, protests have erupted all over the country and the world.
Protests began in Washington, D.C. on Friday when protestors smashed storefront windows and crowds had to be controlled with tear gas.
The Women’s March scheduled for Saturday in D.C. spread to all 50 states, all seven continents and over 70 countries worldwide.
Protestors by the thousands carried signs and wore pink hats in solidarity while chanting things like, “Love trumps hate” and “Not my president.”
Organizers estimated a crowd of 200,000 for the march in Washington; authorities are estimating the number to be closer to 500,000, along with thousands around the world.
Former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, Miley Cyrus, John Legend, Emma Watson, Helen Mirren and Cher were just some of the famous faces in crowds across the country Saturday.
Hillary Clinton tweeted her support for the march while President Trump remained silent.
The Women’s March started as a Facebook event shortly after the election in November and grew increasingly popular in the days leading up to the inauguration.
