Not My President Day, Feb 20, 2017

Not My President Protest, NYC (Trump International Hotel), February 20, 2017

Protests on President’s Day attracted thousands in New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, and other cities. Most of the chants I heard were favorites I’ve previously transcribed (e.g., “Hey hey/ ho ho/ Donald Trump has got to go,” “This is what democracy looks like,” “Say it loud, say it clear, refugees are welcome here.”) Nonetheless, I did hear some new ones, while some old ones were embellished with drumming patterns.
