While their efforts weren't successful, that hasn't stopped celebrities from speaking out, including veteran actor Robert De Niro who has been more than clear in regards to his opposition to Trump.

The 17th edition of the Tribeca Film Festival kicked off with a tribute to 1970s NY with "Love, Gilda", a documentary about the trailblazing "Saturday Night Live" star Gilda Radner. He has, for example, previously said he'd like to punch Trump in the face.

Bomb found in Berlin - city centre evacuated
It may be 70 years after the war but such unexploded bombs are still found in the land here and they are potentially deadly. Berlin police tweeted a photo of their bomb disposal team at the scene, poised to defuse "the source of all the evil".

Festival organizers said this year's Tribeca has been programmed with some of De Niro's fighting spirit. 'We stand with Time's Up, Never Again and Black Lives Matter and underserved voices'. "People have to speak out", the Academy Award victor, promoting his annual Tribeca Film Festival, added. One film De Niro seems particularly stoked on is Liz Garbus' festival closer The Fourth Estate. The Jay-Z produced series "Rest in Power: The Travyon Martin Story" documents the 2012 shooting of the 17-year-old in Florida.

Several of the movies that will be featured at this year's festival have a political theme. Of the festival's 99 features, 46 per cent are directed by women, the most in Tribeca's history.
