They included a wide assortment of African American, Jewish, Latino, immigrants-rights and anarchist groups. While some counter-protesters had clearly come for a fight. At least five of them were arrested by the end of the demonstration for throwing eggs and rocks.

There was a brief flare-up of violence before the speakers arrived. A shirtless man was seen being escorted to safety behind police lines by a plainclothes officer as counter-protesters punched and grabbed at him. Blood could be seen at the base of the man's neck.
