Protestors are planning to come together at 11 a.m. CDT Tuesday to show the candidate they don't support his platform.


"Let's come together and let him know we do not support him nor his hateful message — and make this the largest protest Janesville has ever seen," a Facebook event description says.

"We will not stand for hate, bigotry, and xenophobia in a presidential candidate, nor in our city! Spread the word, and let's make a huge showing at this event!"

As of Monday evening, 1,200 people said on Facebook they were attending the protest, and another 2,200 said they were interested in the event.

The event page says the protest will be a "peaceful event," noting that "violence will not be tolerated."

"If we have to, we will ask (police) to have somebody removed so the event will remain peaceful and positive,” Nichole Mittness, one of the organizers of the event, told the GazetteXtra.

“But hopefully it will not come to that.” 

She urged those attending to walk away if the situation starts "getting heated for any reason."

"We are NOT going to stoop to their level and allow violence to ensue. That is exactly what Trump wants. Be the bigger person!" she said on the Facebook page, according to the GazetteXtra.

The Facebook page for the protest also has a link to a petition people can sign in an attempt to get the rally on Tuesday canceled. The petition, titled "Holiday Inn: Cancel Trump, Don't be a Host for Hate in WI," had been signed by 2,115 as of about 7 p.m. Monday night.

It says that Trump is running a campaign based on "racism, hate, and dangerous intolerance." It urges the hotel to cancel the event as a chain that says it "doesn't tolerate racial discrimination."

"Holiday Inn should not be host to hate. Please cancel the event. Otherwise, it is sending a clear message to would-be patrons about where the company stands," the petition says.
