The protesters held signs saying "f*ck Trump, stand with Muslims", "stand for climate justice", "stand for Standing Rock" and "black lives matter".

Things soon turned ugly though when a Trump supporter with a loud hailer turned up, denouncing the protest as "undemocratic".

The opposing groups faced off, pushing and shoving each other and shouting.

Police arrived on the scene to contain the protest.
