DOWNTOWN — Protesters outraged that Donald Trump has been elected president say they plan to take over the Loop again Saturday.

Nearly 3,000 people say on Facebook they'll attend the rally starting at noon Saturday at Federal Plaza. The protesters plan to march north from the plaza at Dearborn and Adams streets toward the Trump International Hotel & Tower, 401 N. Wabash Ave., to make their opinions heard.

The protests may also coincide with the Magnificent Mile Lights Festival and the opening weekend of the Christkindlmarket in Daley Plaza, 50 W. Washington St. 

The rally is being organized by Answer Chicago, the group that planned the massive Downtown protests that shut down the Loop the night after the presidential election. Another 9,000 people say on Facebook they're interested in attending Saturday's event.

"It is inevitable that millions of people will actively resist a Trump administration," John Beacham, an organizer with Answer Chicago, said in a statement. "A grassroots, fighting progressive movement will emerge to protect people victimized by the hard-right cabal that is set to occupy Washington."

Protesters across the country have taken to the streets for days to protest Donald Trump's presidential win. The protests have been mostly peaceful, but five people in Chicago were arrested during a protest here the night after the election. 

The protests continued through last weekend, when more activists shut down the Loop after a daytime rally in Millennium Park. 

Saturday's protest is endorsed by other activist groups including Black Lives Matter Women of Faith, the Gay Liberation Network, and Code Pink Chicago.
