January 6th-like riot protesters confronted police guarding the Department of the Interior

2041

A violent protest with elements of an assault, as with the January 6th Capitol, took place outside the Department of the Interior. Dozens of victims were hospitalized.

The police, which stood guard over the order and tried to stop the riots, were attacked by aggressive radicals. The officers were forced to use the taser and other special means to control the crowd.

Some videos show how the crowd literally crushes the police officer.

The reason for the confrontation was the eco-activists who occupied the Bureau of Indian Affairs inside the building. And those who remained outside tried to break through the police cordon.

The protest ended with the arrest of 55 activists and the hospitalization of several dozen.

“Interior Department leadership believes strongly in respecting and upholding the right to free speech and peaceful protest,” the agency spokesperson, Melissa Schwartz said in a statement. “It is also our obligation to keep everyone safe. We will continue to do everything we can to de-escalate the situation while honoring first amendment rights.”
