Marching through Washington, D.C., civil rights activists led by Reverend Al Sharpton are kicking off a week of protests ahead of President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration. They're upset about the Republican's angry, populist platform, which included controversial comments on Muslims, Mexicans and women, among others. Sharpton says all must take a stand against Trump, especially those in Washington. (SOUNDBITE) (English) REVEREND AL SHARPTON, SAYING: "We come to say to the Democrats in the Senate and in the House and to the moderate Republicans: to get some backbone, get some guts." It's a message Sharpton promises to keep up, vowing not to back down. (SOUNDBITE) (English) REVEREND AL SHARPTON, SAYING: "We won't be Trumped. We won't be Trumped. We won't be Trumped." A message yelled here... loud and clear.
