Trump protests planned in New York City

2017-10-09 | amNewYork

Oct. 09--New York City may be President Donald Trump's hometown, but New Yorkers aren't letting that get in the way of protesting his policies and rhetoric.

In the months since Trump took office, hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers have taken to the streets to protest many of his key policies and executive orders.

Demonstrations have taken place all over the city, including outside Trump Tower, Trump International Hotel and Tower, at the Stonewall National Monument, Battery Park, Tompkins Square Park, Washington Square Park, Times Square and outside Kennedy Airport, where some travelers were detained when Trump's original travel ban went into effect back in January.

Protests were also held during the three times Trump has returned to the city since taking office. Most recently, three congressional Democrats and City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito were arrested during a DACA rally outside Trump Tower.

Here's a look at other upcoming demonstrations and protests planned in the city.

Rabbis to build sukkah outside Trump Tower

"This coming Monday, Oct. 9, to mark the Jewish holiday of Sukkot and draw attention to injustice toward immigrants and refugees, rabbis affiliated with T'ruah: The Rabbinic Call for Human Rights will erect a sukkah -- a temporary dwelling that reminds us of the fragility of our lives as well as provides a sense of welcome to all within -- outside of Trump Tower. The rabbis will sing, pray and explain why anti-welcome policies are antithetical to Jewish and American values."
