Photo Gallery: Election protests continue on Tempe campus

Students and community members marched down University Drive and Mill Avenue in protest of the 2016 election results on Friday and Saturday evenings

ASU students joined in the national trend of protests Friday and Saturday, following the announcement of election results last week. 

The two days of protesting were organized by students, including ASU student and activist Randy Perez.

“We want to bring attention to the fact that Donald Trump does not represent the people of this community,” Perez said. “He has managed to alienate every growing demographic in this country with his divisive rhetoric and his white supremacy.”

Both of the protests began at the Old Main building on the Tempe campus and wound their way up Mill Avenue to Tempe Town Lake. 

Officers from the ASU police department escorted the march, blocking traffic to allow the protestors to walk through crosswalks safely. 

Other protests were gaining traction across the Valley on Friday and Saturday, with dozens of events popping up on Facebook. 

Students from local high schools have repeatedly walked out of classes to march to the capital over the last week.
