Los Angeles freeway blocked by Trump protesters
OAKLAND, Calif- Several hundred people flooded onto one of the busiest freeways in Los Angeles, causing a miles-long traffic backup in protest of the presidential election of Donald Trump.
The protesters, who had remained peaceful and not overly disruptive for most of the night, poured on to U.S. 101, which links downtown LA to Hollywood, and stayed there for most of an hour. Drivers sat and waited. Many got out of their cars.
The crowd was slowly starting to disperse as many of the demonstrators left the freeway and others were taken into police custody.
There was no violence between officers and protesters.
The demonstrators were among thousands who took to streets in protest of Trump across the country, from New York to Texas to much of the West Coast.
