Al Sharpton-led civil rights march held in Washington, D.C.: See photos

Thousands of civil rights activists protested in Washington on Saturday, less than a week before Inauguration Day.

The We Shall Not Be Moved march was organized by the Rev. Al Sharpton and the National Action Network.

The march to support minority rights was one of many planned protests for the week leading up to Donald Trump’s swearing-in. It came just hours after the president-elect slammed civil rights activist and longtime Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) on Twitter, calling him “All talk, talk, talk – no actions or results.” The tweets were in response to Lewis’ assertion that Trump is not a “legitimate president.”

See photos from the protest below.
