Trump Opponents Protest In VT

Several hundred people are gathered in Burlington, Vermont, Friday afternoon to express their displeasure with the election of Donald Trump as president.
The rally lasted from noon to 4 p.m. on Friday in a park behind City Hall in the city where unsuccessful Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders served as mayor in the 1980s.

A related vigil was scheduled in the evening.

Burlington Police Chief Brandon del Pozo told the Burlington Free Press on Friday afternoon that he expected the protests to be peaceful. A spokesman for the police department said there were no arrests at the afternoon demonstration.
