    A couple hundred people turned out at Berkeley's Civic Center Park early Friday to create a giant human peace sign by standing in formation. 

    The event was organized by Mayor-elect Jesse Arreguin who wanted the event to symbolize the city's "deeply held values of inclusiveness, diversity, human rights, equity, and environmental action."

    He invited Berkeley residents to represent themselves and their determination to stand up to the proposals and policies of President-elect Donald Trump. 

    Drone operator Kevin Kunze shot video of the human peace sign from the air.
