Trump Rally Cancelled at UIC Pavilion

Last night my partner and I attended the protest of Trump’s rally planned at UIC pavilion. As you may know, the event was cancelled. I collected interviews with protesters, Trump supporters, and specators. It was a vivid experience. Please give it a listen.

The song playing in the background is ‘Anxious and Mortified’, written and performed by my dear friend, Mike Glader.

    These interviews are very poignant, especially those with the Trump supporters. Fascinating to hear these comments as events leading up to the cancellation of the rally unfolded. The Trump backer who said “Love doesn’t work anymore…we need to HATE”… sent a chill down my spine!
    Don’t any of these people know about the genocides that have and still are taking place in this world? Those who do, don’t care. Ignorance and indifference make great kindling that fuels the fire of Hatred. Sadly, history repeats itself, over and over again.

Participate.
