Fargo, ND - Across the nation, and now in the metro, people are protesting the the election of Donald Trump.

He won the presidency through the electoral college but millions aren't satisfied. 

Across the nation people are taking to the streets including in St. Paul, San Diego and Las Angeles to name a few. 

In Fargo, they say this is a peaceful protest against hatred, a way to form community and fight against it. 

The protesters say they cannot stand by as people suffer from discrimination and fear. 

"We have to stand strong, and we have to maintain our values, and we have to say that we're not afraid to stand up, not afraid to speak up," said Sarah Schaan, protester.

"The fact that he's endorsed by the KKK, proposed a muslim ban, I think that speaks for itself and speaks to the character of this country and the people who've decided to elect him," said Andrew Boucher, protester.

The protesters say they cannot stand by as people suffer from discrimination and fear.
