It's Inauguration Day, but it's also a day of massive protests! Thank God!!!
Protesters gathered at various security checkpoints near the Capitol in Washington, D.C. Friday morning and afternoon. Police dressed in riot gear (of course) had to provide assistance to inaugural ceremony ticket holders as protesters held up signs and chanted all around them.
The march was called a "Festival of Resistance" by organizers and ran about 1.5 miles to McPherson Square, a park located only three blocks from the White House.
A rally featuring Michael Moore was planned at the park, while the ANSWER coalition set up demonstrations along Trump's parade route.
The DisruptJ20 coalition was one of the main organizers of the protest event, encouraging people to shut down celebrations even if they had to risk arrest.
In fact, lines for ticket holders encompassed several blocks due to protesters causing major traffic at the entrances.
