Yesterday was my first day in Washington D.C., and I started the day by going to a Green Party protest of the DNC near the Capitol. Later on that night I went to a protest of the DeploraBall, where hundreds protested the alt-right event. The second protest became violent with assaults, a smashed police motorcycle, and small fires in the street in front of the National Press Club.
