Across the country, protestors gathered by the thousands rallying against President-Elect Donald Trump. More than 100 people are now under arrest and three officers were injured.
In Los Angeles, protestors blocked the 101 freeway in downtown, set fires in the streets and blocked traffic. Twenty-eight people were arrested there.
Thousands also rallied in Boston, Chicago, New Orleans, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Texas and Washington.   
In New York, police installed barricades to keep the demonstrators at bay outside Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in midtown. Sixty-five protesters were arrested there.
In Oakland, California, fireworks were set off in the streets, businesses were damaged and 30 people were arrested. Three officers there were injured, and two patrol cars were burned.
At ASU in Tempe, students hit the streets too. Hundreds of college students marched through downtown. Earlier in the day, about 200 high school students staged walkouts at several schools in Phoenix. They marched to the Arizona state capitol -- some students chanting "Out Donald Trump." No arrests were reported.
Here in Tucson, students are planning a walkout at Tucson High at noon on Thursday. Also, the UA Immigrant Student Resources Center posted an invitation on Facebook for any students feeling upset to come talk to counselors at the center.
