About 40 protesters gathered in front of the Trump International Hotel in New York City against the violence in Washington and the attempted insurrection by Trump supporters. Demonstrators held letters spelling “TRUMP IS GUILTY”, demanding his resignation; police then attacked the protest, making several arrests against the completely peaceful crowd in a seemingly harsher crackdown than against the insurrectionaries at the Capitol.
Protesters across New York dropped banners for a wide variety of reasons, including rent cancellation, a 2nd stimulus, and the freeing of all prisoners of ICE held in cages in the city’s detention facility. There was also a #NoNBKPipeline banner dropped from the top of a building, to compensate for the lack of activity that has been going on against it.
1,000 Portlanders attended a vigil in Vancouver for Kevin Peterson, remembering him and demanding justice against his killers. Right-wing agitators from Patriot Prayer armed with AR-15s arrived as well, assaulting protesters, as well as a Trump truck ramming through the crowd. After the vigil, protesters marched to Portland and the courthouse in Vancouver, being shot at twice by a Trump supporter.
