Scores of people have turned out to show their anger at a travel ban by Donald Trump, as they call for the US President to be stopped from making a state visit.
A sea of people, armed with placards, gathered outside Brighton Town Hall on Monday night, before marching through the city centre.
It's estimated two thousand people took to the streets, as part of demonstrations across the UK and USA, as a sign of solidarity to the refugees and people of seven mainly-Muslim countries who've been temporarily banned from entering America.
Donald Trump, who is standing by the order, insists it's about preventing terrorism.
Police say they're are monitoring the protest march which brought parts of the city to a standstill - this was the scene outside Brighton Station:
Superintendent Lawrence Hobbs said: "We have been talking to the organisers and have officers there to help facilitate a peaceful protest, whilst trying to minimise any inconvenience to the community. We did have to close North Road to allow those who wanted to march to move through the city and this did cause some disruption to motorists and buses.
"The march has been mainly peaceful and there has been no arrests. We would like to thank everyone for their patience."

Robyn Harris who was at the event described the atmosphere:
"The atmosphere was electric and it was humbling to see so many people from all walks of life attend in solidarity with eachother. Adults, children, workers and students all holding signs and shouting out in resistance. I was honoured to have been a part of it!"

The demonstration comes as over a million people sign a petition calling for Donald Trump to be banned from a state visit to the UK.
Number 10 has insisted Mrs May was "very happy" to invite the US President.
Speaking alongside the Irish Prime Minister in Dublin, Mrs May stood by that position, saying: "I have informally issued that invitation for a state visit for President Trump to the United Kingdom and that invitation stands."
Ahead of the protest, Brighton MP Caroline Lucas slammed the Government for ‘complicity with tyranny’ after a ‘weekend of shame’.
“This truly was a weekend of shame. Not only was the Government’s response to Trump’s barbaric executive order utterly disgraceful, but it undermined any claim from the Prime Minister that she would stand up to the US President on the issues that matter. This isn’t engaging in diplomacy – it’s complicity with tyranny.
“The planned state visit should now be cancelled – and the invitation binned. It’s no wonder that over a million people have signed a petition against the visit, and I’m proud that over one in twenty of my constituents have joined that call. This evening I will be joining thousands of others in calling out Trump’s islamophobia and racism – and making clear that we expect our Government to stand up to bigotry, not meekly back away from confronting it.”
A group of Labour party members - including Councillor Emma Daniel - used the protest to tackle and reducing racism in Brighton and Hove.

Back in Westminster, Boris Johnson has said Donald Trump's "bark is considerably worse than his bite", as he criticised the US President's controversial travel ban.
Answering questions in the Commons, the Foreign Secretary told MPs he shared their "disquiet" over the policy, and stressed it was "not an approach we would take".
Mr Johnson acknowledged the measure, which temporarily bans refugees and citizens from seven mainly-Muslim countries coming to the US, was "divisive and wrong", but stressed the "vital importance" of the transatlantic alliance to the UK.
"Where we have differences with the US we will not hesitate to express them," he said.
