A group of about semi-nude protesters gathered at Union Square on Saturday to voice their opposition to Donald Trump's proposed future policies and long track record of racism and misogyny. Before the protesters marched to Trump Tower, makeup artists painted fake wounds and scars on them to represent the harm that many marginalized groups will face under a Trump administration. From the protest pen, the activists chanted "Don't just watch us, join us" at the many tourists and passersby who were near Trump Tower.
