The Daily Caller posted a Facebook live video from the Heritage Foundation where Leftist protesters took over the main lobby and began chanting and shouting in protest of the President and GOP Congress’s proposed budget.
The budget proposal includes large cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency, among other cuts to agencies dealing with the environment and disaster programs, a proposal which has Leftists in a fit.
Chants included shouts of “Water not walls,” and “The people will never be divided.”
The protesters occupied the building for approximately 10-15 minutes, until security was finally able to contain the situation and escort the protesters out of the building. There must have been well over a hundred or so in the lobby area, if not more. It was jam-packed.
As the protesters were taken out from the lobby, they all chanted in unison “We’ll be back.”
Shouts and cheers could be heard from outside the building as well, where the protest continues as of 11:30 am ET. Bongo drums can also be heard as part of the protest.
