Even as rain began to fall at around 6:45 p.m., protestors remained and marched along the sidewalk.

Organizers from the group Refuse Fascism led the rally. According to their website, Refuse Fascism is "a movement of people coming from diverse perspectives, united in our recognition that the Trump/Pence Regime poses a catastrophic danger to humanity and the planet and that it is our responsibility to drive them from power."

During the Atlanta rally, there were counter-protestors across the street.

The Refuse Fascism organizers have targeted more than 20 cities nationwide for protests on Saturday. Major cities that saw protests on Saturday included Austin, Texas; Seattle and New York.

The group is one of a number of loosely affiliated left-leaning anti-racist groups that monitor and track their activities across the nation. The groups said November 4 is just the beginning of a string of protests planned in coming days and weeks. They did not, however, give specifics for what those events would be in Atlanta.
