Donald Trump's latest campaign event was met with a massive wave of protesters Tuesday night, who brought their best resistance art to show off. The signs at the Phoenix Trump rally counter-protest were exceptional in the way they captured the current political moment in America.
The rally attracted thousands of protesters, though Trump didn't want to admit it during the rally itself — massive crowds were pictured outside the Phoenix Convention Center for the protests. Many people cited the recent events in Charlottesville, Virginia last weekend as motivation for attending the protest, which was clearly evidenced by the signs at the counter-rally. References to Nazism and white supremacy were much more prevalent than in previous protests, with far fewer signs about health care, immigration, and other issues than have been seen in the past.
Despite the high political tensions and large crowds, the protests seem to have remained peaceful. Counter-protesters marched through the streets of downtown Phoenix without incident, which is a welcome relief for people across the country. The focus seemed to be really on voicing objections, and of course, creating some amazing art through which to do so. Check out these awesome signs for inspo for your next protest.
