NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – A group of people marched through Norfolk protesting President-elect Donald Trump Friday evening.

About 50 to 60 people participated in the protest, which started at 6 p.m. Norfolk police say it was a peaceful protest.

Protesters stayed on sidewalks for the most part, but did spill into Granby Street at one point. They chanted phrases like “not my president” and held signs that said things such as “love trumps hate.”

Officers monitored the demonstration and blocked off roads to ensure the safety of protesters.

Some bystanders cheered with crowds, but others felt differently. One couple told 10 On Your Side’s Liz Kilmer that now that protests are over, it’s no longer time to protest.

“Regardless of who you wanted to vote for, the election’s done, it’s time to come together for unity.”

This is the second protest in two days in the Hampton Roads area. A demonstration in Hampton Thursday protested both Trump and the Electoral College.
