On Sunday, hundreds of demonstrators gathered in downtown Seattle — on one side, members of the pro-President Donald Trump group Patriot Prayer, and on the other, counter protesters participating in the Solidarity Against Hate march.

The rally and march were both organized prior to Saturday’s deadly protest in Charlottesville, Virginia, which left an anti-white supremacy demonstrator dead after she was hit by a car. The march participants carried signs against the KKK and hate groups and made their way to where Patriot Prayer was gathered.

The groups were separated by a barricade and police officers, King 5 reports, and while it was peaceful for the most part, there were a few fights and some people were pepper sprayed. Seattle police said there were arrests made and weapons confiscated.
