"Bob McDonnell's Virginia: Meet the Protesters"
On Saturday, March 3, 2012, I filmed a protest for Women's Rights at Virginia's State Capitol. Much of the subsequent coverage of this event focused on the Virginia State Police's use of overwhelming force to crush the peaceful demonstration. This footage was shot before the march and focuses on the demonstrators themselves, instead of the police misconduct.
One of the young women in this video, "Damille," was among the 31 protesters arrested on the the stairs of Virginia's Capitol.
