HAMPTON, Va. – Organizers planned a protest in Hampton at 7:57 on Thursday night.

A flyer circulating social media is calling it a “#757UnityProtest.”

The goal of the protest, which was anti-Trump, was to spread the word about ending the electoral college

The group started at the old Kmart on West Mercury Boulevard and walked down Mercury Boulevard, eventually onto Coliseum Drive.

Hampton Police escorted them the entire way and blocked off several lanes of traffic.

Organizer told News 3 before the protest that they wanted it to be nothing but peaceful.
