The counter-protest to John DePetro‘s President Donald Trump MAGA March arrived at the Providence City Hall steps an hour early and by the time the pro-Trump supporters got there, they were already both out numbered and out-maneuvered. the ranks of both sides swelled as the morning progressed, and by the time the rally marched to the RI State House, they were about equivalent in size, Each side had about 200+ people.
The counter-protesters banged drums and were accompanied by the What Cheer! marching band. Counter-protesters threw up a barrage of sound, and unceasing cacophony that seemed to both frustrate and anger the rally organizers. There was shouting and anger and occasionally people got pushy, but there were no major incidents and overall it was an entirely peaceful, if also loud, event.
You’re beautiful, Rhode Island.
