J20 Arrest

As Donald Trump was being sworn into office, Alexei Wood was in a stuffy patty wagon. Just earlier, he was documenting a DC protest moments before Trump took his oath to uphold the Constitution. Police surrounded and mass arrested over 230 people, including Alexei. The police and courts have charged all the defendants with at least 8 felonies. Alexei has a long history of documenting social justice issues and resistance movements. He video and live-streamed the demonstration from beginning to pepper-sprayed end. He live-streamed in detention of the police kettle and even his own arrest. The video is available for anyone curious to get a first-hand experience and decide for themselves whether people should face 75 years in prison for protesting.

-From Alexei’s Fundraiser hosted by Trey Morrison
