The United Front Against the Far-Right and Capitalist System! march and rally on Inauguration Day started at City Hall then marched across High Street to the Ohio Statehouse. The Ohio Highway State Patrol and the National Guard had the building surrounded with man (and woman) power along with Humvees and patrol vehicles. As speeches were made the "security detail" stared but did not flinch. Signs read “Black Lives Matter” and “We don’t want Biden, we want revenge!” The demonstrators encouraged people to continue the fight against the far right and fascism.
