RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Several hundred people have marched through Richmond to protest the election of Republican Donald Trump.

The march began at Virginia Commonwealth University on Saturday. Protesters carried signs and chanted “we reject the president elect” and “my fist goes up until Trump steps down.”

Saturday’s event was the latest in a string of protests that have occurred in Richmond since Trump’s election. Protests were also being held Saturday in several cities across the country.

Three Confederate statues were vandalized and a dozen people were arrested during a Richmond protest on Wednesday night. Graffiti on the side of a statue of Confederate President Jefferson Davis said, “Your vote was a hate crime.”
