Through heavy wind and rain, human rights activists and students participated in several demonstrations through downtown San Diego on Friday to protest the inauguration of President Donald Trump.

Representatives of as many as 10 organizations, including M.E.Ch.A. from City College, held signs and chanted as they walked to the Federal Building. There, they joined another group of protesters  and  walked to Chicano Park.

Speakers from SD Alliance For Justice, M.E.Ch.A., ANSWER SD, Women Occupy San Diego, International Socialist Organization (San Diego), and the San Diego Green Party called people to action and denounced the Trump administration.
