Just before the afternoon rush hour on Thursday, a group of millennial anti-Trump protesters gathered to thwart the peaceful transfer of power and blocked traffic on the 10 freeway near the Los Angeles neighborhood of Boyle Heights.
On November 10, the protesters blocked the freeway entrance and part of the road near Eastern Avenue at about 3:00 p.m., according to ABC 7. Police had the roadway cleared about 45 minutes later.

Police and media sources said the protesters ranged from college-aged to high school-aged participants.
Large groups of young protesters also gathered at the University of Southern California, University of California, Los Angeles, and in South Gate to protest the American political system.
