AN HOUR AGO WE TOLD YOU THEY WERE INITIALLY ALONG THE SHRUBS, THEN EYTH COME BACK TO BLOCK THE SIDEWALK. WE HAVE DISCOVERED FROM THE CAPITOL POLICE THAT THEY ARE PLANNING TO SET UP A LADDERLESS FENCE. ALL THIS TO ULTIMATELY PROTECT DEMONSTRATORS AND KEEP DEMONSTRATORS OFF THE PROPERTY. WE ALSO WANT TO SHOW YOU THAT THERE IS MORE M MEDIA THAN THERE WERE PROTESTERS UP TO THIS MORNING. YOU SEE MEMBERS OF NAONTI MEDIA, LOCAL MEDIA, YOU ALSO SEE TEAMS PLACE MORE OF THESE METAL BARRICADES AROUND THE UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT BUILDING. YOU ALSO SEE PEOPLE HOLDING SIGNS. REALLY, THE PROTESTERS JUST ARRIVE. THERE IS NO DEFINED TIME FOR THE DEMONSTRATION, IF YOU ALLOW IT. PEOPLE ARRIVE ALONE. WE SEE A NUMBER OF GROUPS, LARGE GROUPS THAT ARE HERE JUST VISITING THE MR NOT NECESSARILY – JUST VISITING THE CAPITOL.ILY – JUST VISITING NOT NECESSARILY DEMONSTRATG. IN THEY ARE A HERE AS THE HUGE NEWS AND SITUATION WILL IMPACT ACROSS THE COUNTRY. WHAT YOU SEE NOW IS A FAR FAR FROM WHAT HAPPENED HERE YESTERDAY. WE WANT TO SHOW YOU SOME VIDEO DEMONSTRATORS.
