More than a thousand Comcast employees have walked off their job in several major U.S. cities to protest Donald Trump’s executive order banning immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries.

Twitter reports appear to show protests in Portland, Washington, DC and Sunnyvale, Calif. The biggest, by far, looks to be in Philadelphia. Philly site BillyPenn reports employees organized the rally through an internal Slack channel. At least 1,200 people are involved, a source told the site.

Earlier this week, Google employees staged a similar protest, with more than 2,000 people walking out of at least eight of their offices.

Comcast employees are using #TechHasNoWalls to document the protest on Twitter.

Good turnout for the Comcast employee walkout today. #techhasnowalls
