A group of Americans living in Portugal is organising a vigil in Lisbon on 20 January, the day Donald Trump is sworn in as President of the United States.
The vigil is being called to defend democratic values and to honour outgoing President Barack Obama. The meeting will begin at 5pm in Largo do Carmo in Lisbon and were both chosen for their symbolism. Local vigils and marches are also planned in New York, Los Angeles and in European cities including Paris, London, Amsterdam, Berlin and Prague. The organisers of the vigil in Lisbon have said it is open to everyone.
