TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - A small group of people descended on downtown Tucson on Wednesday afternoon, Nov. 9, to protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline and president-elect Donald Trump.

The protesters started in front of a bank in the 30 block of North Stone Avenue before walking down the street.

Most were carrying signs to show their opposition to the pipeline, which is supposed to carry crude oil from North Dakota through South Dakota and Iowa into Illinois.

This pipeline has been the source of controversy. Some claim it cuts through sacred tribal land and could impact drinking water.

This isn't the first pipeline protest in Tucson. A group called "Rising Tide" organized a protest in September.

The group on Wednesday also protested Trump with shouts of "Dump Trump."

According to the New York Times, there were anti-Trump protests across the country on Wednesday. Some of the cities affected include Phoenix, Seattle, Pittsburgh, Portland, OR, and Oakland, CA.
