A day after the "Day Without Immigrants" protests, more than 100 general strikes sprouted across the nation “to stand up for America’s democratic principles.”

National strike: Over 100 protests organized against Trump

On Friday, the group known as Strike4Democracy coordinated more than a hundred actions as a part of the #F17 protests, where tens of thousands of people took to the streets in major cities across the US, including Chicago, St. Louis, New York City, Pittsburgh and many more.

On their Facebook page, Strike4Democracy calls for a day of mass strikes against “ICE raids, travel bans, Trump’s mobilization on the border wall, as well as attacks on the rights of workers, women, people of color, the LGBTQ+ community, and our environment.”

The group calls on participants to skip work and school, while refraining from spending any money.

In Denver, protesters shut down a downtown Wells Fargo Bank in protest of the Dakota Access Pipeline.
In North Charleston, hundreds of protesters gathered at the Coliseum ahead of President Donald Trump’s arrival, calling on people to vote.
Pittsburgh protesters gathered in front of the City-County Building to denounce Trump’s nominees and the travel ban.
