Celebrities Lead Anti-Trump Protest

Thursday night before inauguration, celebrities led a rally outside Trump Tower protesting the inauguration and Trump's beliefs. I first found this on Facebook via CNN, where they were covering it live. The video is over two hours long and features celebrities like Mark Ruffalo, Cher, and Shailene Woodley. 

Other news sites such as globalnews.ca and The Washington Post, provided brief summaries of the event. The Washington Post wrote their summary the day before the protest, and gave readers some information of what will happen. CNN's live coverage of the event on their Facebook page informs us their followers will not only want to know what happened, but see it as well. 

Shailene Woodley, Mark Ruffalo, and Mayor Bill de Blasio posted about the protest on various social media accounts. When Woodley took the stage during the protest, she mentioned there were 20,000-25,000 people who attended the rally.
