anti trump protest toronto

Huge anti-Trump rally planned for Toronto

In cities all across the United States, citizens are banding together against hatred and bigotry to protest Donald Trump and the results of the American presidential election.

Torontonians have showed their support with silent tributes at Dundas Station as well as with sympathy cards outside of the US Consulate on University Avenue.

On Saturday, November 19, however, there's an anti-Trump rally happening right in the centre of the city.

"We will be gathering to peacefully protest Donald Trump's legitimacy as US President, and to demonstrate how his, and any hateful rhetoric is unacceptable today," reads the rally's Facebook event description.

"We as Canadians will help our neighbours by showing that misogyny, racism, homophobia, xenophobia, sexism, sexual assault, ableism, transphobia and violence are absolutely intolerable."

The rally starts at 1 p.m. in front of City Hall and participants will march towards Trump Tower at 2 p.m.

This weekend, on Sunday, November 13, there's a rally against hatred at home and abroad. Details for this event remain sparse, but will be released closer to the date. The rally will make itself "a safe space in which the voices of IBPOC (Indigenous, Black, People of Colour), LGBTQ+ folks, women, and non binary folks are centred."
