Shia LaBeouf will be making his political views heard for at least the duration of President Donald Trump's first term in office.

On the morning of the presidential inauguration, the 30-year-old actor launched a protest at the Museum of the Moving Image in New York, and asked those passing by to proclaim "He will not divide us" in front of a mounted camera. The camera is to remain powered on for the next four years, and will be livestreamed.You can watch it here.

"HEWILLNOTDIVIDE.US is a participatory performance by LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner that invites the public to deliver the words 'He will not divide us' into a camera mounted on a wall outside the Museum of the Moving Image, repeating the phrase as many times, and for as long as they wish," the museum's website explains. "In this way, the mantra 'HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US' acts as a show of resistance or insistence, opposition or optimism, guided by the spirit of each individual participant and the community."

Leading up to the art installation, LaBeouf has been tweeting "HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US" every day since Jan. 14.

Jaden Smith, 18, joined LaBeouf on Friday afternoon on the livestream, along with a rather large group of people chanting along with the actors.

This protest comes after celebrities including Alec Baldwin, Cher and Julianne Moore took to the streets of NYC on Thursday night for the “We Stand United" rally. Baldwin did his impersonation of Trump when he addressed the crowd.
