Josh Hutcherson Joins Post-Election Protests in Los Angeles

In the wake of Tuesday’s Presidential election results, Josh Hutcherson encouraged fans in Los Angeles to rally against President-elect Donald Trump Wednesday night. 

“Come join in a peaceful march through downtown LA to show the world how many of us feel!” Hutcherson tweeted. Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul was among those marching with Hutcherson.

The march drew about 5,000 people, according to NBC Los Angeles. Many rallied around city hall, while others took to area freeways on foot. Some protesters blocked portions of the 101 and 110 freeways for a time, until police walked them off. Several people were arrested.

Hutcherson became active in the 2016 campaign early in the primary season, stumping for Bernie Sanders in Iowa and registering voters in California before lending his support to Hillary Clinton. He also appeared in the Vote Your Future public service campaign in October.

One Instagram user who spotted Hutcherson at the rally was quick to make the parallel to Hutcherson’s most famous film role: “Peeta Mellark fighting for democracy.”

Protests in Los Angeles continued through the night and into Thursday.

Hello! I run a blog called blackaction where I post about upcoming elections and protests. I also post about black businesses and media in an attempt to get black Americans more involved in the voting process and also to help people find media that is respectful to their sensibilities. I would really appreciate if you could post this for your followers to see. Thank you very much!
