A crowed of roughly 75 percent women, many dressed in red, rallied outside Central Park and 59th Street before marching to Columbus Circle and rallying near the Trump International Hotel on Wednesday.

 

Police gave orders for the crowd to disperse but a handful of protesters engaged in civil disobedience and were arrested.

 

Among those detained were lead organizers of the Women’s March on Washington, including activists Linda Sarsour, Tamika Mallory, and Carmen Perez.

 

The NYPD could not immediately confirm how many people were arrested, or their charges, according to Gothamist.
