The protest started Saturday morning at Martin Luther King Jr.

"Ten people were arrested for their roles in the events, and other arrests are being actively pursued".

Counter-demonstrators then announced a rally at the same place. "Fascist USA! Drive out Trump-Pence regime!" and "Fascist scum your time is done".
