No Sign of Protest Fatigue

I’ve been asked  a number of times this week if the Resistance is experiencing “protest fatigue.”  At this point, I see no evidence of it: people are protesting daily in downtown DC at the White House and there are numerous counter protests scheduled for this weekend around the Unite The Right 2 rally in DC.  This weekend’s events mark the one-year anniversary of the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, VA that claimed the life of a counter protester.  In advance of the anniversary, the state of Virginia and the city of Charlottesville have declared a state-of-emergency .

At the same time, turnout at this week’s primaries provides more evidence that the Resistance is diversifying its tactics beyond marching in the streets.  For more on the ways the Resistance has focused its attention in the districts, check out Chapters 3 and 4.
