People took to the streets in Ashland's Plaza on Saturday to call for the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

The rally was organized by Oregon District 2 - Indivisible, an activist group from their respective district.

They're also known by their acronym ORD2.

The rally was approximately an hour long and received some supportive honks from cars driving by.

Ashland Peace officers were nearby during the rally.

Some of the signs held by demonstrators alluded to Trump's alleged connections to Vladimir Putin and the Russian government.

Demonstrators waved an American flag, chanted, and spoke over a megaphone as cars and people passed by.

Jessica Sage, the co-founder of ORD2, said Trump has problems up against him.

"There are many impeachable offenses, some of them are obstructing justice, collusion, advocating illegal violence, attacking the free press, unconstitutionally violating campaign finance laws, and separating and imprisoning children and their parents,"

Sage said.

As background, Article II, Section Four, of the United States Constitution reads as follows:

"The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors."

The rally on Saturday does not mean the president is getting impeached.
