I do. I know a few people. It’s interesting to watch their Instagram updates live from the scene, then watch the news coverage, then hear what the rest of the country thinks is going on there.
Honestly, even with those first hand accounts, I’m not sure what’s really going on. Everybody I know says they peacefully protest and then randomly the police or feds come out and clash with them. Of the several people I know who have been going, only one has such a warped political view that they might do minor vandalism or at least support those who are. The rest are definitely not doing anything but standing around and repeating slogans. But all have been gassed and one was shot with a batton round (a wood projectile).
I can tell you that support for the protests is growing among otherwise politically inactive people, because the feds reaction appears excessive and national reporting doesn’t seem to match what’s actually going on.
