Over 4,000 people gathered at the Parkman Bandstand on Boston Common and marched to the State House and through the streets of Boston Wednesday night to voice their discontent for Donald Trump as the nation’s new president-elect.

Boston police said there were no arrests, and that the protest was “peaceful in nature.”

More than 4,500 people had RSVPed on Facebook to the “Boston Against Donald Trump” rally, which was scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.

Others in opposition to Republican Trump’s unexpected election victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton began protesting earlier in the day on the Common and outside the State House. Anti-Trump rallies and protests were also widespread across New England,  as well as across the country Wednesday night.
