Anti-Donald Trump protestors blocked hundreds of fans from entering M&T Bank Stadium for Thursday night’s game between the Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns.
The Baltimore police explained in a release:
On November 10, 2016, at approximately 6:00pm, a group of protestors gathered in the 2000 block of N. Charles Street. This protest was described as an “anti-trump” protest.
The group then walked to the downtown area. During the protest, two individuals were detained by police. No one has been charged at this time. During the protest, some of the individuals blocked roadways and sat in streets. However, the majority have been peaceful and law abiding.
Crowd estimates have fluctuated to upwards of approximately 600 people. A group of protestors remain in the downtown area. Motorists driving in the downtown area may experience traffic delays.
WJZ reports that the protest started at 6 p.m. with a few dozen people and increased to 600 within a few hours. The group marched around the Inner Harbor area, blocked a road, impeded fans at the stadium, and concluded the demonstration before 11 p.m.
Anti-Trump chants overheard at #Baltimore protest:
“No hate, no fear, immigrants are welcome here.”
“We, reject, the President-Elect.”
