Simon Magorian, who organised the event, said: ‘People want to make sure it is not the high point of protesting, but the start of it.

‘I think we have got to fight.’

Ross Campbell, a student at University of Portsmouth said: ‘Trump being elected as president has encouraged a certain hatred to form, a persecution of minorities, which is unacceptable.’
