Peaceful Anti-Trump Protests Continue in Chicago

"Love Trumps Hate" protesters march north across the Michigan Avenue Bridge.

Protests against President-elect Donald J. Trump continued across the country and here in Chicago on Saturday.

Nearly 5,000 protesters marched through the city today, according to an estimate from Chicago Police Department Tactical Lieutenant Godfrey Conin, who worked with one of the larger protest groups to coordinate traffic blockades and to clear a path for the demonstration.

While Wednesday night’s post-election protest was focused near Trump Tower and became scattered throughout the city, protesters at Saturday’s “Love Trumps Hate” event held together a unified group that started in Millennium Park and then marched throughout the city.

Follow the course of the protest from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. below:
