Pro-, Anti-Trump Protests Planned For Saturday Around The Bay Area

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Several events will kick off on Saturday using next week’s tax day as a backdrop for protests.

At an 11 a.m. march and rally starting Mt. Diablo Boulevard and Main Street in Walnut Creek, people will gather to call on President Donald Trump to release his tax returns. U.S. Rep. Mark DeSaulnier, D-Pleasanton, may attend, according to organizers.

A similar message will be delivered at a 2 p.m. rally and march at San Francisco’s Civic Center plaza. Speakers there are expected to include Supervisor Jane Kim and U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-San Francisco.

A Trump tax-release protest will also be held in Santa Rosa at 3 p.m. at the U.S. Post Office at 730 Second Street.

At noon, a protest over Trump’s proposed increases to defense spending will begin at the Palo Alto City Hall, located at 250 Hamilton Ave.

Two competing political rallies planned in Berkeley have prompted fears of possible violent confrontations.

A rally in support of President Donald Trump scheduled to begin Saturday at noon in MLK Civic Center Park and a counter-protest planned to begin at 10 a.m. at the same place have prompted fears of possible violent confrontations.
