Students from Pittsburgh area universities took to the streets early Wednesday morning to protest the results of Tuesday night’s presidential election.
Students from the University of Pittsburgh, Carlow University, and Point Park University gathered in the Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh to protest Donald Trump’s victory in Tuesday’s presidential election.
Those who participated in the protests expressed anger and concern over the results of the presidential election. Several students chanted “no Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA.”
According to a local report, protesters knocked over a construction barrier and burned a “Make America Great Again” hat.
“It was getting pretty obnoxious. People were burning things and cursing at cops,” Angelique Ogunsenow said.
Other students opted to express themselves more peacefully. Students from Carnegie Mellon, Duquesne University, and Point Park University organized a peaceful march against the “hatred and the bigotry in this country that won an election [Tuesday] night.”
