BUCKHANNON — On Saturday, approximately 55 protesters gathered on Main Street to oppose President Donald Trump, referring to their event as the “Human Rights March.”
Starting at 1:00 pm, liberal protesters assembled around the Upshur County Courthouse. On the opposite side of the street, 13 Trump supporters gathered, displaying an American flag.
The anti-Trump protesters then marched to West Virginia Wesleyan College, with a Trump supporter holding a sign reading “These people are stupid!!” leading their path. Along their way, Trump supporters riding in cars, trucks and jeeps displaying American flags began patrolling their route. This consisted of vehicles blasting their horns, playing patriotic music and roaring their engines.
When they arrived at the end of East Main and transitioned onto College Avenue, dozens of WVWC fraternity members were gathered outside of their housing facility, displaying American flags and yelling in support of Donald Trump.
Following their campus checkpoint, they marched back to Main Street. Upon their return, 10 additional Trump supporters gathered on the opposite sidewalk.
The liberal marchers remained until exactly 3:00 pm, when they then dispersed. The Trump supporters remained until approximately 5:45 pm.
