U.S. civil rights activists kicked off a week of protests ahead of Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration with a march in Washington on Saturday, vowing to keep fighting for equality and justice under the upcoming administration. Chanting “no justice, no peace,” a few thousand protesters headed by the Rev. Al Sharpton marched along the National Mall toward the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, about two miles (3 km) from the steps of the U.S. Capitol, where Trump will be sworn in as president on Friday.
Pre-march speakers denounced Trump to protesters, who braved drizzle and temperatures just above freezing to show their support for minority rights and President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare law, which Trump has vowed to dismantle. “We stand together, not as a people of hate, but as a people of hope,” said Charley Hames Jr., president of the Oakland, California, chapter of Sharpton’s National Action Network. “We believe this march is the first of many.”

platform that included promises to build a wall along the Mexican border and restrict immigration from Muslim countries. … Trump’s disparaging comments about immigrants and women and stance against Obama’s healthcare law have drawn the anger of many on the left, who plan a series of protests. “He’s a clown,” said marcher Ken Coopwood Jr., 17, of Washington. “I think he’s not going to care about much, unless it’s personal.”
Civil rights groups including the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and the National Council of La Raza, as well as Democratic lawmakers had all said they would take part in Saturday’s march. The march began hours after Trump blasted U.S. Representative John Lewis after the Georgia Democrat and civil rights campaigner said he did not see Trump as a legitimate president.
From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

DONALD TRUMP declared yesterday that “people are pouring into Washington in record numbers” ahead of his inauguration — but unfortunately for the president-elect most appeared to be for demonstrations against him.
US citizens have been staging mass protests against the race-baiting property mogul in the week leading up to his inauguration, which will take place on Friday.
Teachers will march tomorrow in a bid to “reclaim our schools” and a gigantic women’s march will target the misogynist new president on Saturday.
Mr Trump continued yesterday with his attacks on Congressman John Lewis, who has challenged the legitimacy of Mr Trump’s election victory. He accused Mr Lewis of being “all talk.”
Mr Trump added that Mr Lewis “should finally focus on the burning and crimeinfested inner cities of the US,” with “inner cities” being outdated code for black communities. Unemployment, poverty and crime are high in black areas as a result of decades of government economic policy and still-widespread racial discrimination.
Mr Trump’s fellow Republican loudmouth Paul LePage, the governor of Maine, said that Mr Lewis needed a history lesson about all of the wonderful things white people had done for black people in the US.
“A simple ‘thank you’ would suffice.”
Grant was president before the racist Jim Crow laws, and Hayes’s presidency laid the ground for them.
As a testament to their lasting achievements, black people are now locked up in state prisons at over five times the rate of whites.
