2019 in Progressive Activism

Video compilation of protests and direct actions mostly but not entirely in the DC area as the resistance against the regime of Donald Trump enters its third year. (16 min 58 sec)

Begins with the government shutdown, highlights multiple confrontations with fascists, features the month-long siege of the Embassy of Venezuala, and ends with the impeachment of Donald J Trump. Protests and battles of all kinds rock the streets in between. Lots of marches and civil disobedience, occasional fire and smoke.

All kinds of actions from anti-Trump liberals to Extinction rebellion to hard anti-Fascist showdowns against neo-Nazis are covered in this video anthology of 2019.

Note that how this past year has played out sets us up for a very rough 2020 election year (and removal vote in the Senate), and if Trump disputes an electoral defeat we could in a year and a month be facing the "hottest" Inauguration Day in all US history on J20/2021.
