ALBANY - Protesters in Albany are angry that the Senate voted to acquit President Trump without calling witnesses. They call Wednesday's vote a cover up.

Multiple protesters NewsChannel 13 spoke with say they feel like democracy died.

Plenty of horns were being honked both for and against what protesters were standing for.

Organizers say they came up with the idea for a series of rallies throughout New York state a few days earlier when they learned Republican senators were planning to acquit President Trump.

One organizer said they were expecting 300 protesters just at the Albany location.

There are also anti-Trump protests taking place in New York City, Beacon, Kingston, and Syracuse.

The location of the protest at Clinton and North Pearl was chosen because of its proximity to a federal office building.

Hear from one organizer who says their work is cut out for them, by watching the video of Emily Burkhard's story.
