Anti-Trump Protests in Durango Draw "Coal-Rollers"

Several hundred people in Durango protested Donald Trump’s election by lining the city’s Main Avenue from 12th to 17th streets on Sunday.

The Durango Herald reports the protest was peaceful, but diesel trucks bearing Confederate flags belched clouds of sooty exhaust at the demonstrators, a practice called “coal-rolling”.
