Protests against Donald Trump are heating up in California as the June 7 presidential primary approaches. On April 29, it was the Bay Area's turn.

Before a city council meeting in Anaheim on Tuesday, Trump supporters and anti-Trump protesters used tasers and pepper spray on each other. Outside of a Trump rally in Costa Mesa on Thursday, traffic was blocked, police cars vandalized, and 17 people were arrested.

On Friday, Trump was scheduled to speak on the opening day of the California Republican Convention in Burlingame, just south of San Francisco. Protesters came out in force, blocked streets with lockboxes, and pushed through police barricades to rush the Hyatt hotel at which the convention was being held. Trump's motorcade was unable to drive directly to the hotel, so Trump and his entourage were forced to walk from Highway 101 through concrete barriers to reach the convention via a back entrance.


BlackOUT Collective goals:
— Reject Donald Trump's political visit to Northern California
— Pressure Silicon Valley tech companies to divest funding from a Trump-led Republican National Convention.
— Increase the visibility of Black voices, and other voices of color, in opposition to Donald Trump.
— Demand a radical transformation of American democracy where Black people have the social, economic, and, cultural and political power we need to thrive.

Event announcement: Turn Up on Trump in San Francisco. The primary social media hashtags for the action were #WeWillNotBeTrumped #NoConfidence and #TransformDemocracy.

What happened at the Super Tuesday protest at the downtown San Francisco building owned by Donald Trump?

Please check out the great colorful pics and written report from the Tuesday, March 15 #TrumpNever protest at his San Francisco-owned office tower:

We expect many more demonstrations at this former Bank of America tower, 30% of which is owned by Trump, in the coming weeks.
