Thousands of marchers used the annual May Day March as a platform to protest President Donald Trump’s administration on May 2017.

Demonstrators gathered at MacArthur Park at 11 a.m. and marched about two miles to City Hall in support of workers’ issues, issues of discrimination and immigration issues.

Groups chanted “We don’t want a fascist U.S.A.” Another group chanted “the people united will never be divided” in spanish.” One group dragged a pinata of Trump through the streets of downtown.

Another pinata of the President was paraded around with a sign that read “All hail the idiot king.”

Drummer’s struck their instruments during the two mile march. Musical performances before and after the march included Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello who performed “This Land Is Your Land” while the crowd sang along.
