ATLANTA/January 08, 2018(AP)(STL.News)— Protesters plan to demonstrate against President Donald Trump when he visits Atlanta Monday for the College Football Playoff title game.

The NAACP is urging people to hold anti-Trump signs and wear white to mock the “snowflake” label Trump’s supporters use to describe their opponents. Another group, Refuse Fascism ATL, says they’ll “take a knee against Trump” outside CNN’s world headquarters near the stadium before kickoff in the game between the University of Alabama and the University of Georgia.

Atlanta police have said they will set up several designated areas for protesters and won’t interfere with demonstrations. Local, state and federal law enforcement authorities said last week that they’ve worked for months to develop security plans for the game.
