Rally at White House (and more coast to coast) demand release of full Mueller report

On the 4th of April, several of the big liberal and Democrat-aligned NGO groups held hundreds of rallies from coast to coast demanding that the full Mueller report be released to the public and that Congress get it entirely without redactions. One of the rallies was in front of the White House, where speakers suggested the tiny "summary" released by the attorney general might not even be an accurate assessment of the report's true contents.

Palestine supporters march on AIPAC, face harassment by Holocaust deniers

On March 24, Palestinians and their supporters marched on the annual convention of AIPAC(American Israel Public Affairs Committee), which is known (same as corporate lobbyists etc are) for buying influence on Capitol Hill. On arrival they ran into a curious opposition: A Holocaust denier and his sidekick proceeded to harass and argue with the pro-Palestine protesters. Perhaps this is no surprise given anti-Muslim hate modern Nazis (alt-right) are famous for.
