Protests nationwide, but no “Night of Rage”

Thousands of people showed up Friday for a protest in front of the Supreme Court in Washington, D.C., joining others in cities across the country from Philadelphia to San Francisco. But despite threats from the pro-abortion group Jane’s Revenge, 8 p.m. came and went without a violent “Night of Rage” kicking off. One black pickup truck allegedly tried to drive through a group of protesters in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, but no one suffered serious injuries. In Phoenix, police fired tear gas from the tops of buildings to disperse protesters after they began banging on the glass doors of the state Senate building.

Who showed up? Pro-abortion demonstrators commanded the majority of protests. One group of individuals dressed in black masks and hoods and armed with black umbrellas paraded around Washington. It was unclear whether they were activists with antifa, a leftist group that traditionally wears black at protests.
