An anti-Trump march through the Tampa neighborhood of Ybor City last week got a bit chaotic when protesters walked past a pub frequented by Marines.
Pub-goers came outside and expressed their opposition around 7:30 p.m. Protesters yelled anti-Trump rhetoric, while Marines yelled, “U.S.A!” repeatedly. Law enforcement officers formed a barrier between the two groups in an attempt to keep things calm.
“People are not going to go down without a fight,” said anti-Trump protester Jenna Ferreira. “A lot of people are feeling marginalized, a lot of people feeling oppressed, they’ve lost hope. But, everybody here is full of love and we are going to fight for our rights.”
On the contrary, Johnny Gomes said, “I think they don’t really know the issues. I think that they are misinformed they followed, sorry, but the regular media and don’t know the real story.”
Though it got intense for a few minutes, the protest remained peaceful and marchers moved on without further incident.
