Hundreds of people protesting the Trump administration rallied in the Embarcadero Plaza then marched to San Francisco City Hall on September 5th, part of two dozen planned actions in cities across the country.

While the overarching theme was the removal of Trump and Pence, signs and speakers addressed the many problems that America faces. The summer of 2020 has been hot, and one topless protester stayed cool sans shirt waving their "We Can't Breathe" Banner. Another demonstrator displayed a "Protect Trans Lives" sign subtitled "We're Queer and We're Angry." Speakers gave voice to the suffering of immigrants whose families and communities have been terrorized. The environmental movement and womyn's rights were also addressed.

Organizers called for 60 days of nonviolent protests until the election. Refuse Fascism stated that, "For more than three years, people have relied on the normal channels to stop this regime, only to watch them turn into dead ends. But the months of Black Lives Matter protests show how dread can be transformed into a force for hope. Our power is sustained, mass, non-violent protest in the streets. Our strength is our diversity. Our demand is for justice."
