Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “Sparse crowds but plenty of opinion at U.S. Capitol rally” – below is their description.

A sparsely attended ‘Justice for J6’ rally on Saturday featured more police officers and press than protesters as a few hundred demonstrators gathered in the shadow of the Capitol building to show support for the January 6th rioters who stormed it. A heavy police presence – officers in riot gear, plain clothes police, law enforcement on bikes and horses – awaited the crowd. Also there were counterprotesters, who carried homemade signs – one read loser which was a reference to Donald Trump, its carrier said – and ‘Black Lives Matter’ flags. One small group stood on a street corner, blaring the song ‘FTD (F*** Donald Trump).’ Police broke up shouting matches between the two groups, moving people apart before fights could break out. There were no reports of violence amid fears the day could turn into another insurrection. One man with a knife was arrested on a weapons violation charge.
