West Allis, WI - 50 protesters rallied in zero-degree weather outside the entrance to Donald Trump's ‘Thank you tour’ at the Wisconsin State Fair Park on Tuesday night, Dec. 13. The anti-Trump activists stood in the entrance to the park as Trump supporters were forced to walk through the protest to enter the Trump speaking event. After Trump supporters insulted a woman carrying a protest sign, the protesters chanted, "Pussy grabbing is not okay!"

The protest was organized by a growing coalition called The Milwaukee Coalition Against Trump, which consists of student, labor, immigrant rights, faith, anti-racism, environmental and other grassroots community organizations.

The coalition also participated in another protest at the same time as the Trump protest oppose an ‘alt-right’ speaker at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee.

On Inauguration Day, Jan. 20, the coalition will lead a mass march and rally to kick off "100 Days of Resistance" to Trump's agenda.
