Protesters Confront Alt-Right White Nationalists in D.C. (photos)

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.
