Video: Disrupt J20-The Day In Resistance

Video file updated-some sound enhancements, better quality version of the clip showing the empty parade route, Richmond clips in night march sequence near end captioned as such.

Video compilation of the days’s events at the Counterinaugural/Disrupt J20 protests against Donald Trump. Checkpoint blockades, Alex Jones expelled, empty parade route, Richard Spencer punched, heroes rescue elder and disabled protester from police attack during Battle of K Street, limo burns, marches go on well into the night after a 7AM start. This is but the beginning of four long, hard years of utter fighting against every scrap of Trump’s racist and fascist agenda.

The last night march clips were from another march in Richmond, VA, the first night march clip is from DC, the video segues between them with the same chant running, then fades to the artwork at McPherson Sq. Twitter posts were unclear as to the location of that march.

Note that the heroes who stood up to Donald Trump on Jan 20 were said by the mainstream press to outnumber pro-Trump inaugurationgoers by as much as 3 or 4 to one. The police were the least numerous but most violent element, in the video you see a hero dive into pepper spray to shield and protect an elderly woman and a disabled protester with a crutch. You will also see neo-Nazi leader Richard Spencer getting a walloping punch in the face.

Activist warned there would be “no peaceful transition” and indeed there was none: J20 was well and truly disrupted!
