Protesters chanting Black Lives Matter slogans on Wednesday clashed with Capitol Hill police outside the fence erected last week to keep Congress safe during President-elect Joe Biden’s transition to power.
The group, which was attempting to tie a banner with the slogan “EXPEL ALL FASCISTS” to the fence, met strong resistance from the police, which ordered them to leave Capitol Hill because they were protesting without a permit. Protesters resisted and shouted at the police line. Capitol Hill police, as well as a contingent of the National Guard, pushed the group off the Hill before dispersing them.
The article goes on to state the following:
The protest began when members of the group ShutDownDC invited protesters to write the names of congressional Republicans who had backed President Trump’s attempts to challenge the election on Jan. 6. The group singled out Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz as the Republicans who most urgently needed to be “expelled” from the Senate.
“It’s not enough to impeach the president of the United States,” ShutDownDC organizers said. “We need to expel the members of Congress who aided and abetted and facilitated the political conditions to allow a fascist mob to overtake the Capitol and have five people die.”
In the clip, an officer told the protesters, “If you do not leave, you will be subject to arrest.”
The protesters began chanting at the police, accusing them of “allowing” the Trump-supporting protesters to storm the Capitol.
The National Guard began forming a second line behind Capitol Hill police.
As more police joined the line, they began to push the protesters away from the fence. The group began chanting at the police and accused them of being fascists.
