"Not My Presidents Day" (sometimes "Not My President's Day", or "Not My Presidents' Day") was a series of rallies against the President of the United States, Donald Trump, held on Washington's Birthday (an American federal holiday also known as Presidents' Day), February 20, 2017.[1][2] Protests were held in dozens of cities throughout the United States.[3][4][5][6] Demonstrations were also held outside London's Houses of Parliament, and in Orkney.

The marches were mostly coordinated through Facebook. Organizers of the protest stated that although Trump was the president, they wanted to show that he did not represent their values.[7][8] Los Angeles was the first city to plan a "Not My Presidents Day" rally, which was attended by more than a thousand protesters. New York City saw the largest demonstration, with an estimated 10,000 to 13,000 people attending a rally outside Trump International Hotel and Tower. The events were mostly peaceful, although thirteen people were arrested in Portland, Oregon.

Preparation and planning

The "Not My Presidents Day" protests were mostly coordinated through Facebook,[9][10] like the original event in Los Angeles, whose details were spread through social media, inspiring other rallies.[11] Before some rallies, there was a poster-making session.[12]

The artist's collective, Bad and Nasty, helped coordinate events for "Not My Presidents Day".[13][10] Holly Hughes helped create Bad and Nasty via social media.[13] Hughes told MTV News, "I made an idle threat on Facebook [...] I would gather the Bad Hombres and Nasty Women of Ann Arbor together at a dive bar for performance on NOT My President's Day. And overnight more than a thousand people wanted in!"[14] Other women involved in planning Bad and Nasty events were Lois Weaver and Mary Jo Watts.[15] In Minneapolis, Bad and Nasty was involved with a performance called "This Machine", planning well in advance of February 20, 2017.[16] The University of California, Riverside, also planned a Bad and Nasty event for President's Day.[17]

The Women's March committee of New York city also aided in planning for Not My Presidents Day.[14]

There were about 400 protesters in Atlanta, where a peaceful demonstration called "ImPEACH Now! (Not My) President's Day March" was followed by a 6-mile (9.7 km) march from the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority's Arts Center station, near the Woodruff Arts Center, to Lenox Square, in Buckhead.[1][18][19][20] Many of the people participating in Atlanta's event were first-time protesters.[18] The event was organized by Matthew Williams of Democracy Spring Georgia.[19] There were about 200 people at the rally outside the Maine State House in Augusta, Maine. The protest was organized by a young trans man, Jazpyer Harrington. Participants chanted "We need a leader, not a creepy tweeter" and sang "God Bless America" and "The Star-Spangled Banner".[21]

Several hundred protesters attended a rally outside the Texas State Capitol in Austin, which was also attended by some Trump supporters. The demonstration was organized by a woman who resides in San Antonio. There were no major speakers; attendees took turns speaking into a megaphone.[22] The rally started at noon and lasted until 3pm.[23] The Baltimore protest was held along North Charles Street in the Station North Arts and Entertainment District. It lasted into the evening and, according to CBS Baltimore, had a reportedly "different tone than elsewhere in the rest of the country, with less protesting, more talking".[24] Michele Minnick and Laura Pazuchowski were co-organizers of the event, which also attracted dozens of Trump supporters.[24] A group called "Bad and Nasty' Baltimore" organized a day of art and activism, which included face painting, sign making, and a workshop titled "Our Democratic Heritage".[25] Entrance to the event was on a sliding scale up to $10, with proceeds benefiting the state's chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union (Maryland ACLU).[25]

In Chicago, hundreds of protesters gathered at the intersection of Wacker Drive and Wabash Avenue, across the Chicago River from the Trump International Hotel and Tower.[26] Estimates said there were 1,200 people;[27] police reported no arrests. A group of 25 local musicians known as "Sousaphones Against Hate, Baritones Resisting Aggression" performed for the crowd.[7][11] Wabash was closed temporarily to both foot and vehicle traffic.[28] Former Governor of Illinois, Pat Quinn, was at the protest gathering signatures for a ballot initiative.[6] A demonstration also took place in Columbia, South Carolina.[27] About 40 people gathered at a rally in front of Great Barrington, Massachusetts' Town Hall.[29]

This series of protests marked the fifth consecutive day of anti-protests in New York City.[46][90] The crowds first gathered on Central Park West.[91] There were also protesters outside the mayor's office.[92] About 10,000[93] to 13,000 people attended the "Not My Presidents Day" rally,[94] which was held outside Trump International Hotel and Tower,[95][96] including some Trump supporters.[9] The rally remained peaceful, with no arrests made.[9] The rally also included a disability rights speaker and a speaker from the Stand up to Trump Coalition UK.[97] The rally ended at about 4 pm, when police began to disperse the crowds.[98]

Hundreds of people gathered at Free Speech Plaza in downtown Eugene and marched to Kesey Square. Oregon Strong Voice of Lane County, which has support from 26 different organizations, was represented at the event.[102]

Two marches were organized in Portland.[103] The "We the People: Marching in Resistance" rally included groups such as: Oregon's Union Movement, Basic Rights Oregon, Unite Oregon, and the Northwest Oregon Labor Council.[104] The event was held at Director Park[105] and the groups had a permit to march.[106] Don't Shoot Portland organized a demonstration in front of the Edith Green – Wendell Wyatt Federal Building, where a small group of protestors faced off with police.[104] This second protest did not have a permit and consisted of a couple of hundred people.[106] The police were in riot gear and pushed the crowd out of the street.[104] Thirteen demonstrators were arrested for blocking traffic.[107][108][109] One protester was tackled by the police and then shot with non-lethal projectiles.[110] One man who was reportedly "one step off the curb" in the street was pushed to the ground by police, had his arms pinned to his back, and was then pepper-sprayed in the face; and a woman was shoved to the sidewalk and then shot by police with "pepper balls".[111] A 66-year-old woman was also tackled and hurt by the police when she attempted to shield her 72-year-old friend from being pushed.[111] Several of the people arrested were minors, with six young people including a 14-year-old being cited.[112][113] The adults were arrested on charges of disorderly conduct in the second degree, with one man also being charged with resisting arrest and giving false information to the police.[114]

The next day, there was a small demonstration in front of Portland mayor Ted Wheeler's house to protest the arrests.[115] The group protesting outside Wheeler's home had obtained a permit for the demonstration, however, the organizer, Gregory McKelvey, also said that the mayor is "perpetuating this idea we only get hurt or sprayed or physically beat because we don't have a permit".[116] Wheeler later issued a statement in which he said that mistakes were made by the police during the event.[117] He also said, "Yesterday we saw images of a woman in her sixties injured during an arrest. That isn't good for democracy either."[118] The ACLU condemned the actions of Portland police and asked that the force "end the violence against protesters. Stop the unnecessary use of crowd control weapons. Stop sending officers in riot gear to peaceful protests. Stop arresting organizers."[111] Following the arrests of the protesters and their treatment by police, Wheeler, Police Chief Mike Marshman, and the ACLU held discussions about tactics and policies relating to crowd control by the police.[119]

Pennsylvania

In Philadelphia, demonstrators gathered at Thomas Paine Plaza to march in a rally called "Counter the Executive Orders".[58][120] There were about 300 protesters who participated in the three-hour event.[121] State senator Art Haywood attended the Philadelphia rally where there was a family-friendly station set up for children of protesters.[122] In Yeadon, Pennsylvania, a small group protested outside of the Yeadon Borough Hall.[123]

United Kingdom

In London, an anti-Trump rally was held outside the Houses of Parliament as House of Commons debated whether Trump should be allowed to visit the United Kingdom.[124][125][126] The London organizers included the Stop Trump Coalition and One Day Without Us.[127] In Orkney, two dozen protesters gathered to send postcards to Trump.[128]

Aftermath

Reactions

Victoria Taft of the Independent Journal Review called the use of President's Day to protest the current president new and said, "Some would suggest that it's downright disgraceful to use the day to protest."[129] Tucker Carlson, in an interview with Shane Saunders, a "Not My President's Day" protester from Los Angeles, dismissed the protest actions completely, saying, "I'm making the mistake of taking you seriously."[130]

A conservative Trump supporter in New York, who attended the rally at the west end of Central Park, said that the protesters are trying to "spark the end of civilization".[131] A Trump supporter in Port Richey told protesters, "He's our president. He was elected," and told WTSP News, "I feel like if they don't like what's going on, go ahead and move."[72] Another in San Diego said he went to the rally to support the president: "[Trump] needs support where other people go against him, even if it's just one person at that moment."[132]

In Atlanta, two women involved in the protest were struck by eggs thrown by three men in a pickup truck.[133] In Pueblo, motorists shouted obscenities at protesters, with one person telling demonstrators to "get a job".[67] In Washington, D.C., two bikers for Trump surrounded the demonstration and attempted to drown out speakers by revving their motorcycle engines.[134] A man standing in front of the White House with a megaphone yelled at the marchers to "Leave Trump alone!"[135] The ACLU tweeted that the arrests of peaceful protesters in Portland was "shameful".[136] The organization also advised Mayor Wheeler to "revise crowd-control strategies".[137]

Overall, participants of "Not My Presidents Day" said that it was important to express themselves. Jenna Karvunidis, an organizer in Pasadena, said, "I'd like to show my children that you do have a right to speak out against something that's unfair."[59] Will Allen in Washington, D.C., chose to protest the "incompetence of the Trump Administration".[134] Mercedes Vizcaino of New York said, "I think it's important to take a stand and not be complicit about what's going on in the country."[6] According to the Christian Science Monitor, most protesters felt that Trump did not represent them.[135]

Impact

Organizers of the "Not My Presidents Day" events wanted to keep up the momentum of the resistance against Trump.[14] Many of the newer organizers for events gained experience in working with a large amount of people.[14]

The event allowed individuals to "channel" their negative feelings about the Trump administration into something creative and positive.[73] Susan Thames, in Williamsburg, told WAVY-TV that "the rally gave her the sense of being a part of a larger movement".[49]

Participants of the rally in Austin wanted to use "Not My Presidents Day" to educate others and hoped that more people would get involved with expressing their political opinions. Amanda Barta, who organized the rally, said, "if you're loud enough, if we vocalize something enough, if you come together enough, things can change".[23]
