Tens of Thousands of Minnesotans Join Women’s March
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Tens of thousands of protesters attended a women's march in St. Paul to demonstrate against Donald Trump's new presidency.
Many demonstrators wore pink caps or scarves and some pushed baby buggies as they streamed to a rally Saturday in front of the Minnesota state Capitol.
St. Paul police say the crowd swelled to at least 60,000 — far surpassing organizers' hopes for 20,000.
Teacher Kjerstin Hagen says she had to reassure her students who were scared after the election.
Another participant, Kathy Chinn, brought her two daughters as well as her mother and mother-in-law. Chinn says she doesn't think Trump respects women or immigrants.
Police say the only arrest was a man who marchers say sprayed a chemical irritant at them.
Approximately 500 people participated in a march in Rochester.
