#Notmypresident protest in the Cistern

College of Charleston students gathered in the Cistern on Friday afternoon to voice their reactions to the results of Tuesday’s election. Protests against president-elect Donald Trump have flared up across the country in almost a dozen major cities. The #notmypresident movement has been criticized for episodes of violence and riot-like behavior.  The event on Friday, however, was peaceful and organized on social media. Students’ concerns ranged from environmental degradation to racism to sexual assault. See it in their own words below.
