Philadelphia Rises Up And Tells The GOP What They Think Of Them

With the Republican Retreat in full swing at Philadelphia’s Loews Hotel, demonstrators took to the street Thursday evening to protest the GOP and “President” Donald Trump’s policies.

More than 1,000 protesters marched from Rittenhouse Square Park to the sand-filled garbage trucks at 12th and Walnut, before turning and going up to Filbert Street.

The protest, scheduled from 4pm to 7pm, continued well past that. The Philadelphia Police department states no arrests of protesters were made.

Throughout the march/protest, activists and concerned citizens changed various anti-trump/anti-GOP chants.
