RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Hundreds of people are marching through Richmond to protest the election of Republican Donald Trump.

A video posted (http://bit.ly/2fuvPhi ) by the Richmond Times-Dispatch shows protesters carrying signs as they walk down the street on Saturday shouting "this goes on until Trump steps down."

Saturday's event is the latest in a string of protests that have occurred in Richmond since Trump's election.

Three Confederate statues were vandalized and a dozen people were arrested during a protest on Wednesday night.

Graffiti on the side of a statue of Confederate President Jefferson Davis said, "Your vote was a hate crime." Also tagged were statues of Confederate General Robert E. Lee and naval officer and oceanographer Matthew Fontaine Maury.
