Hundreds of people marched through St. Paul Wednesday night to protest President-elect Donald Trump.

A group named "Stand Up To TRUMP'S Fascism!" organized on Facebook, and began a march at the State Capitol in the early evening, before making its way downtown, according to the Facebook group and tweets.

The group also chanted, "This is what America looks like," "F--- Donald Trump," and "Refugees are welcome here! Latinos are welcome here!"

At one point, Unicorn Riot, an independent media organization, tweeted the group stopped to burn an American flag.

Media reports say there were upwards of 300 people who took part in the protest, which was still going on at 11 p.m., according to tweets. Police told the Star Tribune they were directing traffic, but weren't interfering, noting there was no violence reported.

This is just one of several anti-Trump protests held around the country Wednesday, including in Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Detroit and Portland, Oregon.

According to Complex, dozens of marches, rallies and protests have been scheduled this week. You can see the list here.
