Throngs of protesters were on the march in downtown San Francisco this evening to demonstrate against Donald Trump's election to the presidency. The protest, which began at 5pm at Powell and Market streets, is on the march at the moment, headed to the Castro.

While the exact size of the crowd was not known, a tipster on the scene estimated that it was in the thousands. Protesters could be heard chanting "Not my president," "Fuck Donald Trump," and "No racist USA, no Trump, no KKK."

Meanwhile, in the Castro, a planned 6pm candlelight vigil was already underway, with the two demonstrations likely to join forces later this evening.
