We have delayed the publication of our newspaper this week from Thursday to Friday, to get more of the information and any possible fall out following Trumps presidential victory.
As we feared, major protests and violence have erupted throughout the United States and in Europe.
In New York protesters took to the streets to march against the President-elect at Trump Towers and around the country in Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Boston, Washington DC, Seattle, St.Paul Minnesota, and Portland Oregon, protests have erupted against Trump even across the Atlantic in London.
Remember after Obama won the election in 2008, all the protests in the streets, all the con servatives smashing things and burning the Flag and all the violence, NO? me either, that's because it didn't happen. Conservatives accepted defeat peacefully.
In this country the first amendment guarantees every one of us the right to free speech and to peaceful protest, it does not give anyone the right to violence, it does not give you or I the right to burn cars and smash winows or be destructive to private property, these protests are illegal and need to be stopped.
Trump said in his victory speech "It is time for us to come together as one United people"
Hopefully the country will not end up under Martial Law before he will have the chance to make that happen.
