It was a small but enthusiastic group of campaigners who gathered at Vancouver’s Trump Tower on Wednesday to try to stop Donald Trump being elected US President.

The Stop Trump event was organized by global citizen movement Avaaz to get Americans living in Vancouver to register to vote in the upcoming election.

US citizens were able to register to vote in a truck covered in ‘Stop Trump’ banners and American flags, equipped with iPads and voting booths parked outside Trump Tower.

Here are some of the best images of the Stop Trump event:

According to Avaaz, about eight million American live abroad, but most do not vote. A recent report concluded these untapped voters could potentially swing the election.

The Stop Trump campaign is targeting countries where the most Americans live, including Mexico, Canada, the UK, Germany, France, Israel, and the Philippines.

If you are US citizen living abroad and want to register to vote, you can find a registration tool on the Avaaz website.
