Code Pink disrupts Trump speech at Omni Shoreham

On the 10th of June, Donald Trump spoke before the "Road to Majority" conference, an event sponsored by the allegedly faith-based far-right group Concerned Women for America. Outside, protesters called out the hypocrisy of this, given that all major religions condemn the kind of xenophobia and hate Trump is peddling. About ten minutes into Trump's speech, Code Pink activists disrupted him and were expelled by force.

Virginians Against Trump marches to Capitol against hate

On the 6th of June, "Virginians Against Trump" marched from the White House to the Capitol to protest the racist candidacy of Donald Trump for president. This was a small but diverse group including supporters of both major parties united by opposition to Trump. The small size and reality that Facebook promises don't equate to turnout reminded me of the first Black Lives Matter rally for Michael Brown rally at the White House in Sumnmer 2014. There too it was apparently the organizer's first time out-but nowhere near the last.

Neo-Nazis post pro-Trump flier at Union Station with Jewish caricature

On the 26th of May, a neo-Nazi propaganda poster promoting Donald Trump appeared on a Metro station post at Union Station. The poster used a caricature of Jews consistant with those drawn in Nazi newspapers in Germany during the 1930's and blamed "Jew media" for "whipping up hysteria" against known racist Donald Trump. This poster is designed to resist removal, being a very difficult to remove sticker of thin paper with very tough glue and probably will leave behind permanent damage to the underlying paint.

Video-Protesters battle police, interrupt Trump in New Mexico

On the 24th of May in Albuquerque, New Mexico, protesters fought a significant battle against police and disrupted yet another racist Donald Trump event. Opponents of the racist hate spewed by would-be Fuhrer Trump sucessfully stormed through a police barricade to reach the Convention Center where the Trump event was held. inside, Trump was repeatedly interrupted by protesters, chants and booing could be heard in the background. Protests went on outside well after Trump's event had ended, at one point with rocks and fireworks being traded for tear gas or pepper spray, at another point protesters marched over the roofs of police cruisers in victory
