More than a dozen people were arrested during Saturday’s demonstrations where far-right groups planned protests against far-left extremist groups.

Members from the far-right group, Proud Boys planned the event as a demonstration against domestic terrorism. Their particular focus was on the far-left extremist group Antifa (Anti-fascist).
