Berkeley, California is again the site of demonstrations which has escalated into a physical clash.
This time, supporters of President Donald Trump were hosting a rally and protesters met them in a violent way.
Per LA Times:
Hundreds of pro-Trump demonstrators and counter-protesters clashed Saturday at a “Patriots Day” rally in Berkeley, the third time the two groups engaged in violent confrontations on city streets in recent months.
Fist fights broke out among members of both groups on the streets around Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Park, where pro-Trump supporters had scheduled a rally. Fireworks and smoke bombs were thrown into the crowd, an a few demonstrators were doused with pepper spray.
At least a dozen people were arrested, according to some media reports.
These groups have conflicted several times in recent months:
Last month, 10 people were arrested and seven others injured at what was supposed to be a pro-Trump rally in the famously liberal community. In February, a scheduled appearance by conservative provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos was cancelled amid a violent protest on the UC Berkeley campus.
