After Trump’s victory shocked liberals across the country, college students took to the streets and parks of their communities to vent their rage. At the University of Michigan, students gathered on the Diag, the heart of the main campus, to protest on Wednesday evening.

At the beginning of the rally, the mass of that had gathered could be heard shouting “pussy grabs back” and “the people united will never be defeated.” The chants then became the slogan “not my president” which has emerged as a national rallying cry against President-elect Donald Trump. The rally, attended by students and community members alike, would continue into the evening and included student speakers calling for both support of marginalized groups and voicing their fears in anticipating of the next four years.
This was not the first anti-Trump protest to take place on the Ann Arbor campus. Last night a less organized effort materialized as students marched through the Undergraduate Library after it was reported that Trump had surpassed the necessary 270 electoral votes to win the election.
