Rosie O’Donnell and a group of Broadway performers went down to Washington, D.C., to protest Donald Trump.

The protest is part of #KremlinAnnex, a series of daily protests outside the White House that started on July 16. The hashtag #KremlinAnnex is a reference to Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election in favor of Trump.

Standing in front of giant letter that spelled out “TREASON,” O’Donnell and the Broadway performers marked the 22nd day of continuous protest outside the White House.

“The message to the people is to use your voice, stand up against treason and stop fascism before it takes over the United States,” O’Donnell said.

She also talked about the importance of protest. “We’re gonna keep coming until he’s out. We hope to give you a nice little show, and remind you your voice is important. Let the president know we’re alive, awake and woke,” she said.

The performers then started in on a rendition of “America the Beautiful.”

The protest featured Broadway songs, chants, and speeches from people like Kristin Mink, who was in a viral video a month ago when she confronted EPA director Scott Pruitt in a restaurant and told him to resign.

“I think it’s time for a brand new day,” said Mink. “The Republicans, they want to win the elections by making fewer people vote. Democrats, we win elections by getting everyone to the polls.”
