PORTSMOUTH - Another rally against President-elect Donald Trump on the Granite state's seacoast. Some who voted for Trump say the protesters have a right to freedom of speech.
"It was like being born again," said Petar Ramadovic. He is speaking about when he came to America.
Ramadonavic fled from Forwill Yugoslavia 25 years ago when the war broke out. For him, coming to America was a new beginning. Sunday night he stood side-by-side with hundreds of others in Portsmouth's Market Square who held signs protesting against the decisions and actions President-elect Donald Trump has shown during his campaign.
"Everyone that Donald Trump has insulted and hated throughout his campaign....It was really important to give them a peaceful and respectful voice," said Ramsay Dean who organized Portsmouth's protest.
"Bridges not walls" shouts the crowd. Those who support Trump stand across the street. Some were yelling profanity towards the crowd but others say those who are protesting have every right to be there.
"I think it's wonderful that freedom of speech...all the republicans who voted for him, we don't agree with everything either. We just want change" said Caroline Crooker of Milford.
Protesters holding signs saying they fear hatred toward one another will spiral out of control. For Petar it's this that worries him.
"His actions are leading in the same direction that I saw the form of Yugloslavia go. There it was ethnic and religious hatred," said Ramadonavic.
Those protesting say they just hope this will show President-elect Trump they want peace for everyone.
"All the people that he encouraged during his campaign to hate to now put everything aside so we can now stand together as a country," said Sharona Long of Portsmouth.
To show unity a small group of women sing "Love, love, love, people we were made for love" while playing a drum.
