HeadlineAug 22, 2019

In San Francisco, progressive activists disrupted an event Wednesday honoring House Speaker Nancy Pelosi with a lifetime achievement award. Dozens rallied outside the InterContinental San Francisco Hotel, while inside four others interrupted the ceremony, calling on Pelosi to support the impeachment of President Trump. Demonstrators also protested Pelosi’s June approval of billions of dollars in funding for a Republican border security package. The activists were eventually removed by the police. No arrests were made.
