#WomenDisobey: Arrests continuing here in the Hart building, it’s been 40 minutes and police have only led away about a quarter of the crowd. #WomenDisobey: Dems are showing up to support protesters. I’ve spotted @SenGillibrand, @SenMarkey, @RepJayapal, and @SenDuckworth - with her baby.

(Thread) I spent 2017 documenting protest & activism in the DC area. It was a non-stop (ongoing!) beat, and 7,000+ photos later, here's some of the most unforgettable. 1. (1/20) #DisruptJ20, several anti-Trump protests blocks from the parade route. 200+ swept up in a mass arrest (upper left), facing riot charges. Most still awaiting trial.

Arrests at @lisamurkowski’s office, another #KillTheBill sit-in. Police already pushing people back. “No Jones, no vote!” They want the tax bill held until Doug Jones is in. Police warn they’ll all be arrested if they keep chanting. #KillTheBill
