Anyone driving near the Drury Hotel or Whole Foods in Brentwood late Friday afternoon, early evening, would have seen and heard the ‘This is Not Okay: Take Action’ protest, KMOV reported.
More than a dozen organizations came together to protest President Trump and what’s happening in Washington, D.C.
News 4 estimated more than a hundred people at the corner of Brentwood Boulevard and Eager Road, which started at 5:30 p.m. and lasted until 7:30 p.m.
“We’ve had enough, there are so many things that are happening right now in the current administration that are not ok,” Annie Danis with Indivisible St Louis told KMOV.
Rachel Parker said, “I want people to feel like these are safe and comfortable place to come and part of the privilege of being an American is being able to gather in public places when we feel that things are not going our way.”

40 South was there at approximately 7 p.m. and saw close to a hundred protesters, mostly at the corner with the Brentwood fountain. No one was blocking traffic. Police from Brentwood, Richmond Heights and Webster Groves were watching from squad cars parked at Bonefish Grill.
