Anti-Trump protests spread across United States of America
Protesters have started to gather for another set of demonstrations against President-elect Donald Trump in the US.
Hundreds met in Union Square Park to march to Trump Tower in Manhattan, where the next president lives and runs businesses.
Protests this week in Portland, Oregon, turned violent and one person was shot, but most rallies passed off peacefully.
Demonstrations are also scheduled for Saturday in Los Angeles and Chicago.
A wave of protests has been taking place in parts of the US since Mr Trump’s election victory took some by surprise.
One organiser of the New York protest, Kenneth Shelton, told the BBC that it was not an attempt to challenge the legitimacy of Tuesday’s election. “We lost,” he admitted.
Placards at the demonstration express despair and anger, the BBC’s Paul Adams says.
One read “Trump: An American Tragedy” while the message on another read “Now We’re Your Nightmare”.
“We must unite despite our differences to stop HATE from ruling the land,” organisers of the New York protest wrote on Facebook. Demonstrations in the city earlier this week have drawn thousands of people.
Thousands of demonstrators gathered on Thursday and Friday in the centre of Portland, the largest city in Clinton-voting state Oregon.
Some protesters smashed shop and car windows, threw firecrackers and set rubbish alight. Objects were thrown at the police, who responded with pepper spray and rubber baton rounds.
Police declared a riot and made 26 arrests.
One man was shot on Friday. Police said he was taking part in a march across a bridge in the city. His injuries were not life-threatening, but his attacker is still at large. BBC News
