La Puente protester: ‘We should learn from history not repeat it’
Victoria Bernal drove to the women's march from La Puente at 7:15 a.m. Saturday with sign that read, "We should learn from history not repeat it."
Bernal has been to other demonstrations and decided to come to the march to support human rights and the various groups that are standing up against President Donald Trump's rhetoric.
"I've never been so scared for the country," she said. "Don't set back immigration rights, don't set back women's rights and gay rights."
She said while she worried about what kind of changes will take place under the Trump administration, she feels optimistic.
"It makes me feel better to know there are people who are just as upset as I am and that gives me hope."
