Scene quiet before frenzy of big game, planned protests

09 Enero 2018

President Donald Trump is in Atlanta to watch Alabama's Crimson Tide and Georgia's Bulldogs face off in the College Football Playoff National Championship.

In a series of previously tweets made by Trump, he referred to the city as "horrible" and "crime-infested".

"Black lives matter! Women's lives matter and immigrants' lives matter!" protesters chanted, some opening umbrellas against the rain.

According to The Associated Press, protests have been planned ahead of the 8 p.m. ET kickoff around the time the president will arrive in Atlanta.

Tee Stern, with the group called Refuse Facism ATL, said the demonstration was called to "take a knee" against the Trump administration.

The group is not only upset with recent Trump policies that they say hurt the environment and poor people, but it's also upset with what it sees as a history of racism on the part of the president. Crowds were sparse for most of the day's concerts in Centennial Olympic Park.

The NAACP urged people to wear white and wave white towels in the stadium whenever the president appears, mocking the "snowflake" insult Trump supporters make against the president's opponents.

"We're going to make a snowflake turn into a mighty blizzard inside of Mercedes-Benz stadium when Mr. Trump comes", Gerald Griggs, vice president of the Atlanta NAACP, said Monday.

There's also a hashtag campaign the group is starting by using #Don'tCome and #AllTrumpLiesATL. Local, state and federal law enforcement authorities said they've worked for months to develop security plans.
