REUTERS, 16th APRIL, 2017 - Tens of thousands  of people marched through midtown Manhattan and dozens of U.S. cities to demand that President Donald Trump release his tax  returns and to dispute his claim that the public does not care about the  issue.

Organizers of “Tax  March” in more than 150 cities across the country and beyond wanted to  call attention to Trump’s refusal to disclose his tax history, as his  White House predecessors have done for more than 40 years.  The  marches coincide with the traditional April 15 deadline for U.S.  federal tax returns, though the filing date was pushed backed two days  this year.

There were no reports of  violence or arrests, in contrast to a clash between Trump supporters  and opponents that erupted at a rally in Berkeley, California, where  nine people were arrested.

Two of  the biggest tax marches took place in New York and Los Angeles, with  each drawing about 5,000 people, according to estimates by Reuters  reporters. No official estimates were immediately available.
