13 arrested in California pro and anti-Trump rallies

At least nine demonstrators were arrested during the brawls, which broke out at an event originally organized as a so-called "Patriots Day" free speech rally and picnic by conservative activists.

As supporters and opponents of Donald Trump clashed violently in Berkeley, Calif. on Saturday, video of the confrontations quickly made their way to social media showing the two sides exchanging blows and heated words.

At least 100 people from both camps eventually moved out of the park and into one of the city's main intersections, where they continued to fist fight, hurl insults and chant at each other.

Eleven people were injured, with seven transported to the hospital in unknown condition, Berkeley Police spokesman Byron White told CNN.

Popular Video People were so furious about this Pepsi ad that Pepsi pulled it after just one day.

It appears that anti-Trump protesters - many clad in anarchist black - initiated much of the violence.

"A large number of fights have occurred and numerous fireworks have been thrown in the crowds", Berkeley police said in a statement.

The Los Angeles Times also reported about 50 people from a pro-Trump militia group called the Oath Keepers were involved in the violence.

The items encountered at the protest that are prohibited have included flagpoles, a knife, a stun gun, helmets and signs and flags attached to poles. The Trump supporters are ordinary Americans.

The groups then left the park and walked on Berkeley streets with police closely following them. "That's a message I can get behind", Tempesta said. Because officers were outnumbered, they had to watch the fighting from a distance.

There were roughly 1,500 people at the dueling rallies.

Mr Trump was the first major-party nominee in more than 40 years not to release his returns and he reneged on a campaign commitment to release them. Numerous attendees at the Washington D.C. march wore the pink pussy hats that were first seen at the Women's March in January.
