The same group held rallies in other cities around the country, and they say it’s not just a one-time event.
“We’re out here today beginning daily protests, raising the demand that this nightmare must end, the Trump/Pence regime must go,” said Refuse Fascism organizer Samantha Goldman. “We’re beginning a movement that is going to drive them from power through non-violent political resistance.”READ MORE: Some Philadelphia Residents Facing Fines For Piled Up Curbside Trash As Pickups Delayed
It was mostly peaceful until a little skirmish, where an argument involving three people went from words, to spit, to a tackle and handcuffs.
