The march and rally began at the campus bookstore and participants listened to several speakers before marching through the western half of campus chanting in support of women, immigrant and minority rights. The group traveled north to Lomas NE before looping back south on University, as cars honked their support or dissent.
James Friedman, an organizer with the Albuquerque branch of the Party for Socialism and Liberation, said the group put out a call for the rally in order to voice their support for women, the LGTBQ communities, and other disenfranchised people.
He said the party is opposed to Donald Trump’s presidency but it would have held the rally regardless of who was elected president.
