MILWAUKEE -- Protests are being planned across the country, including here in Milwaukee as President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration approaches. A group will meet in Milwaukee's Red Arrow Park on Friday, January 20th.

Red Arrow Park has been the site of many protests in Milwaukee, and it'll be the setting for an inauguration day march. Organizers said it will be similar to protests after the election.

Meanwhile, Milwaukee police said they're prepared.

After the election on November 8th, protesters voiced their displeasure with President-elect Trump in downtown Milwaukee.

The group behind that protest is planning to speak out once again, as President-elect Trump takes the oath of office.

"Our goal is to prevent attacks against women, immigrants, refugees, LGBTQ folks," Maricela Aguilar Monroy with the Coalition Against Trump said.

Friday's protest will mark the second march organized by this coalition.

"We want to vocalize our resistance against the Trump agenda. We are fully within our constitutional rights to do that, and so we are expecting a peaceful march as well," Monroy said.

During November's protest, there were no major incidents.

"There were no arrests. Nobody got hurt, and that`s what we`re fully expecting this time around," Monroy said.

Police are preparing, however.

MPD officials told FOX6 News in a statement: "Milwaukee police are planning for potential demonstrations related to Friday's presidential inauguration. MPD will have adequate resources on hand to monitor these demonstrations and ensure public safety."

Protesters said in the past, they've had a good relationship with law enforcement.

"They were there to make sure we were able to take the march we wanted to take," Monroy said.

In the past, police have focused on traffic control during protests.

    Nothing could make these people happy, they are nothing but ignorant idiots hoping they will get some attention. Hopefully they get jail time and fines then they will have something to cry about.

    It may have been an oversight but they forgot to mention, as far as what they’re protesting against, the constant verbal as well as physical attacks on Trump supporters. Maybe the reporter, Ms Shannon, could add the picture of the kidnapped….spit upon….beaten….Trump supporter, along with these photos of the caring and compassionate protesters. Oh….you lost that photo?

  • GHOST OF CHIEF BRIER

    Law enforced….here in Milwaukee? Did they get rid of Barrett and Flynn? Come on, you know better than that.

        Not very familiar with the way liberals act are you? Remember the Walker recall? When the liberal “teachers” went out to protest, most of them just called in “sick” or didn’t show up at all. They didn’t want to burn up their “vacation” time… and they didn’t care about screwing the students out of a proper education as well. Ya, we all know how they roll.

    “Not my president” What country are you moving (back) to? Because if you’re in the US, Trump IS your president.

    • FAUX6 PANDERS TO LIBERALS

      FAUX6 does support crime since they are always pandering to the BLM movement and liberal cry babies. They will delete any non-“liberal loving” post from the boards, that’s how pathetic and uneducated their staff has become.

  • Metal Maniac

    Evidently the education system in Milwaukee is a failure. They failed to teach kids how elections work. You all LOST. It’s over, lets move onto the next thing.

    Isn’t Maricela Aguilar Monroy an illegal alien? She should be more concerned about ICE finding her than with the US election process.

      Hussain Obama has emboldened these criminals for 8 years. They have been living in a dream land where crime has little to no consequence. The dream is over, the alarm clock is set for Friday.

    Get over it already you snowflakes, if you don’t like here in the US then get out nobody is telling you to stay.

    You, my protestors, appear to be the one’s filled with intolerance and hate. Look in the mirror, you’re the ones spewing the vitriol. What hypocrites. Funny part about all this is that they are actually helping the republicans by acting like little babies who didn’t get their way and they are going to pout and scream until they get their way. Thank you from this Trump loving republican. YOU LOST!

    LOL “Against hate” yet these fools are breaking the law with vandalism and death threats (Death threats seem pretty hateful in my opinion). Oh that’s right liberals have a DOUBLE STANDARD and it’s OK if you hate anyone that doesn’t believe what they believe. No wonder none of these idiots have jobs.
