University of Oregon students marched in an anti-Trump protest, following the election

Watch|  Hundreds of students from the University of Oregon marched and gathered in an anti-Trump protest in response to the presidential election results Tuesday night.

 

Students spoke on why they disagree with Trump earning the presidency. One student who spoke, sophomore Pieper James, said the protest was about voicing concerns about Trump’s views on race while making their voices heard. “I think the protest gets our word out there. And I think it's important for young people to always have their word heard and at least have a say in what's going on. And I really believe this protest is to say, we really still have a voice and we are the current generation and we are the people that are going to make the vote in the future,” James said.

James went on to say that the key to making a real change is to keep the discussion alive within the student body. While the protest was a peaceful one, several students said their concerned the passion of the protest will fade after the election week.
