Demonstrators 'March for Truth' in San Diego

More than a thousand people gathered near the Washington Monument on Saturday to rally at the March for Truth, calling for an independent investigation into accusations of collusion between Russian Federation and President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign.

Organizers of the March for Truth are calling for an independent commission to investigate Russian interferences in the 2016 presidential election and for possible ties to Trump himself. The organizers were also calling for an investigation into ties between Russian Federation and President Donald Trump and his associates.

"The issue with the Trump Administration is no longer the traditional issue of transparency, it's the issue of fiction", Snyder said.

The crowd stretched about two blocks and participants hoisted signs with slogans such as "Fact Yourself", "Truth sounds like hate to those who hate truth", "Independent commission now", "Lock him up" and "Follow the rubles".

Like several others at the rally with whom VOA spoke, Buckingham said he thought other countries weren't contributing enough financial support under the current agreement and that it would hurt the US economy if America honored the deal signed by former President Barack Obama. "This is about rule of law, and potentially egregious conflicts of interest within the Executive Branch", said Donna Smith, Executive Director of Progressive Democrats Of America.

"We will be environmentally friendly but we're not going to put our businesses out of work". "We sent a message and now we have something tangible to stand by".

"I thought it was quite clever and, in the end, I respect a man of his word", she said of Trump and his "Pittsburgh not Paris" remarks.

Mayor Steve Adler also spoke at the rally, and organizers read a statement from U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett, D-Austin.

A few demonstrators at the March for Truth told NPR what brought them out to rally on Saturday.

Brenda Rosenthal, 64, said she was flabbergasted by what she called a lack of accountability. "I'm just wanted to be here to support my president and the promises made and the promises he kept", she said.

"Our government needs to be transparent", said Perry, 34, arguing the president should release his tax returns. "Despite this, the tech industry's determination to innovate and problem-solve for the threats posed by climate change and generate clean energy opportunities that create jobs and grow our economy remains unchanged", ITI President Dean Garfield said in a statement.

Environmental activists in Bosnia, one of the poorest European countries, said they were anxious the Trump's move would empower global polluters. Chants of "Investigate Trump!" and "Resist, resist!" rang across the National Mall.
