Over 120,000 New Yorkers take to streets on one-year anniversary of Trump presidency

Tens of thousands of people took to the streets in New York City on Saturday to show support for groups including women, immigrants and people of color as many of them pointed their fingers directly at the US President Donald Trump's policies.

The second annual Women's march came just 12 hours after the US government shut down and on the day exactly one year after Trump's inauguration.

Andrea Hagelgans, a senior advisor to the NYC mayor, tweeted that the official turnout was more than 120,000.

"This is about us showing that we are out here to protect the values of our constitution," she said. "To honor the rights, to respect the rights of so many people. Mexicans, immigrants, Haitians, Africans."
