As the hours go by on Election Day in the United States, protests against Donald Trump were being held on the streets, leading to tense scenes.

Hundreds marched through parts of the Capitol, sometimes blocking traffic and setting off fireworks. Some chanted: “If we don’t get no justice, they don’t get no peace!”

 

Elsewhere, there were reports of scattered protests in Los Angeles, California; Raleigh, North Carolina; Portland, Oregon and New York City.
