Protesters stormed hallways and staged sit-ins at the offices of Congress members who voted yes to the GOP tax package on December 5, leading to arrests and a significant police presence along Capitol Hill. This footage is described as showing police vehicles lining the streets near the Rayburn House Office Building. “People…were arrested for refusing to leave Congressional office building hallways in protest of the GOP tax plan,” the uploader told Storyful over email. “Unfortunately I only got the scene after they were loaded into the police van and bus.” According to a report by ThinkProgress, an estimated 300 protesters filled Cannon Office Building, chanting “kill this bill, don’t kill us.” Credit: YouTube/David Connerty-Marin via Storyful
