Left-wing activists on Tuesday packed into The Heritage Foundation’s main lobby to protest President Donald Trump’s proposed budget cuts and to attempt to bring the organization to a halt.
Approximately 200 protesters entered the lobby of The Heritage Foundation’s headquarters in Capitol Hill protesting against conservative think-tank’s budget document, called “Blueprint for Balance.”
The Twitter account a group called “People’s Action” tweeted out videos of protesters storming the building and chanting “shut it down!”
100% Fed Up reports:
A group called “People’s Action” just held their big gathering in Washington, DC yesterday. They had the usual suspects like Keith Ellison and Socialist Bernie Sanders speak at the meeting. They were protesting against cuts from the budget…The bottom line is the radicals don’t want any cuts to big government because they want to keep the cradle to grave freebies going. Socialist Bernie Sanders was ready to fill their minds with visions of freebies from big government.
The protesters expressed their opposition to President Trump’s budget, saying it will hurt the environment, the poor, and communities of color.
Some people inside the nonprofit’s building held their own protest, holding “Repeal Obamacare” signs at the windows for the protesters to see.
The Heritage Foundation tweeted, “We will not be bullied or silenced by staged protesters backed by progressive special interest groups connected to George Soros.”
