Update: Direct action made it difficult for Patriot Front to escape DC after their last march

Just over a month ago, Patriot Front's (PF)march on DC has heckled all the way back to their Arlington Cemetary pickup point. Instead of the expected three U-haul trucks they expected to ride out in, there was only one. The other two were out of action. PF claims they were destroyed by an opposing anti-Fascist strike team. Note that Patriot Front intends to return to DC on Jan 21 for the forced-birth march

A few miles away, a coalition of over 100 groups held an opposing rally vowing never to let fascists install an open dictatorship in the US.
