DENVER -- Hundreds of people protested in Denver Friday against the inauguration of Donald Trump.

The protestors gathered on the steps of the Capitol, and marched through the streets of downtown. 

Two original protests, one by DisruptDJ20 and one by another group, merged with Denver Public Schools students that walked out of class to form one large group.

When the group took to the streets, Denver Police had to block traffic as the group marched down 15th, turned and went back up 17th, to end back in the park. Chants of "not my president" and "love trumps hate" echoed through the streets.

Denver Police said there were no arrests at the downtown protest.
