Several hundred protesters marched outside the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in downtown Washington D.C. on Saturday, November 19 to protest the National Policy Institute (NPI), a white nationalist group, which was holding a conference inside, in part to celebrate Donald Trump’s presidential victory. The NPI leader, Richard Spencer, coined the term Alternative-Right, or Alt-Right, to express an ideology based on white supremacy, xenophobia and racism. The protest began peacefully, but turned violent when two advocates came out for NPI and were confronted, with one suffering a bloody cut on his forehead.
