Democracy Now! (May 9): Direct Action against Trump in Lynden, Washington [View all]

On Saturday, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump made his first campaign visit to Washington state, where he addressed thousands of supporters in Spokane and later in Lynden . . . Meanwhile, outside the rally, dozens of #StopTrump activists blockaded a highway in Lynden as Trump held a rally in the rural community near the Canadian border. Three activists were arrested after they used chains and PVC pipe "lockboxes" to form a human chain across two lanes of traffic. They said their action was a protest against what they described as a campaign rooted in fear and hatred.

Excellent reporting by DN's Laura Gottesdiener and John Hamilton.

I think we'll be seeing a lot of this kind of thing between now and November.
