Dozens protest in Olympia: ‘No KKK, no fascist USA, no Trump’
Dozens of anti-Donald Trump protesters are rallying on the steps of the Olympia Capital Building.
Demonstrations in Washington’s capitol started around noon on Friday. Supporters of Planned Parenthood are rallied in front of the Planned Parent building.

A Facebook page for the event said, “This is a space where we can come together and discuss how the election results have already impacted and will continue to impact rights to healthcare and safety.”
Photos posted of the event page showed protesters holding signs with phrases such as “My body, my choice,” “Abort Donald Trump,” and “I stand by PP.”
The page said the event would end by 3:30 p.m. “in solidarity with the ‘Protest Trump Olympia’ event happening at the Capitol building.”
KIRO 7 Chopper flew over Olympia, where we saw another protest that appeared to be demonstrating the North Dakota Pipeline construction around 3 p.m.
When flying over the Washington State Capitol building, chopper video showed about 70 people gathered on the steps for the Trump protest. It’s unclear if the Planned Parenthood protesters merged with the anti-Trump protesters.
