Darling no more: anti-Trump protesters offer to help Ivanka move

At the juncture of 59th and Fifth Avenue today, a small but enthusiastic crowd gathered with emblazoned moving boxes and bright orange caps that read: “Trump Moving.”

The crowd was organized by the Halt Action Group, after learning that the soon-to-be first daughter and her husband Jared Kushner are moving from their Trump Park Avenue spread to Washington D.C., where Kusher will take up the role of senior advisor.

Protesters cradled moving boxes representing their concerns, the freedoms they are afraid of losing, and a few plain insults:

“Your brothers kill leopards for fun”

“My issue? Your dad”

“My body, my choice, my rights”

“Ivanka is a wanker”

“Can you take your stepmom with you?”

“The boxes are all the things we don’t want the Trumps to forget,” Genevieve, a protester, told LLNYC.

The crowd marched from their gathering point opposite the Sherry Netherland, to Trump’s building at 502 Park Avenue, where Ivanka recently listed her apartment for $4.1 million. They circled the block with a small police presence chanting “Tell daddy no!”

Another activist named Roddy noted the artistic nature of the protest. His box was scrawled with the word “liberty,” which he fears a Trump presidency will deprive him of. “For me personally, [it will be] a much better city without the Trumps.”

Halt Action Group also recently created a campaign called “Dear Ivanka” which features an Instagram feed of stock images of the president-elect’s daughter along with pleas to her to address her father’s policies regarding global warming, universal healthcare and women’s issues.

Ultimately, Ivanka didn’t accept the offer of help.
