On a day when major cities across the United States saw large rallies and protests against President Donald Trump's Executive Order on immigration, Weave News was on hand to provide exclusive live coverage of a rally that took place in the small town of Canton, NY. Located less than 30 minutes from the Canadian border in northern NY state, Canton has a population of roughly 6,000 people. Yet its rally, which attracted some 300 local residents, garnered national attention when it was listed in an article on ThinkProgress and featured on an MSNBC map of major protest actions.

Our live video coverage of the Canton rally, courtesy of Weave News citizen journalist Shane Rogers, was originally aired on Facebook Live (where it has received over 10,000 views as of this writing) and is now also available on our YouTube channel. The video features several speakers as well as short interviews with numerous attendees.

Below is a gallery of images from the rally, courtesy of citizen photographers who graciously agreed to share them.
