Activists will voice their frustrations over the apparent mismanagement of investigations into Trump and Putin's cozy relationship this weekend.

On Saturday, June 3, Orlando will join 135 cities across the country for the March for Truth, a nationwide protest demanding transparency in the investigation of Russia's involvement in the 2016 presidential election.

The protest will begin downtown in front of the Orange County Courthouse (425 N. Orange Ave.) at 6 p.m.

Lead organizers for the nationwide movement include Andrea Chalupa, Jordan Uhl and Justin Hendrix. Coordinators for Saturday's protest include grass-roots volunteers and organizations like #Resist: Orlando.

According to March for Truth, the movement's goals are as follows:
  • An independent commission must be established and Congressional investigations should be properly sourced and pursued free of partisan interests
  • As much information as possible should be made available to the public, as soon as possible
  • Congress should require Donald Trump to release his tax returns to clarify his business interests and obligations to any foreign entity
  • If crimes were committed or if collusion is discovered, it must be prosecuted
