San Francisco Bay Area Rages Against Trump Victory

We're going to see a lot of this over the next four years.

As the news of Donald Trump's election victory sank in, hundreds of protesters across the San Francisco Bay Area took to the streets, freeways and college campuses early the next morning to rage against his impending presidency.

Protesters gathered in downtown Oakland at Frank Ogawa Plaza for a peaceful march which quickly turned violent, according to the East Bay Times. Protesters shut down lanes of traffic on Highway 24 around midnight for more than 20 minutes. A pedestrian was hit by a car on eastbound Highway 24 at Claremont Avenue.

"Not our president!" many chanted. "Si se puede!”

Protesters threw a rock through the window of the Oakland Tribune office, set several dumpsters on fire, and sprayed profanity about Trump on buildings.

Hundreds of people also gathered at San Jose State University’s Olympic Black Power Statue to rally against Trump. A Mexican flag was on display.

“It’s unfair and more people should have voted for Hillary," one student said. "I’m worried about people of color being kicked out of the United States."
