Protesters demand Alexandria Holiday Inn not host fascists

Video-interview w participant 3 min 28 sec

On the 4th of January, protesters showed up outside the Alexandria Holiday Inn, demanding fascists and Proud Boys be refused rooms for the upcoming coup attempt. A "credible threat" of violence caused organizers to call the event off with 1/2 hours notice, but people showed up anyway and proceeded with the protest though on a smaller scale.

The Trump supporters, Proud Boys, etc have been booking hotel rooms in N Va after the Harrington Hotel and Harry's Bar refused to host them, and at least one other hotel considered booting them out too. None the less, multiple hotels in DC itself are expected to be hosting violent far-right terrorists this week. So much violence is expected that the National Guard has been activated, initially unarmed for traffic control.
