Antifa reportedly clashed with U.S. Secret Service agents in front of the White House on Sunday, as far-left counter protesters demonstrate against white nationalists attending the ‘Unite the Right’ 2 in Washington, D.C.

Footage circulating on social media purports to show Secret Service agents attempting to clear Antifa members from the area, prompting the far-left protesters to throw eggs at the federal law enforcement officers. NPR reporter Tim Mak tweeted video of eggs being thrown amid “lots of pushing,” outside the White House:

Subsequent footage captured by Mak shows Antifa launching fireworks, eggs, and water bottles at police officers, while Secret Service agents back off from the scene:

Reuters’ David Shepardso noted Secret Service agents demonstrated “significant restraint,” as protesters refused to exit the entrance of the area:

Independent Journal Review staff writer Julio Rosas posted video purporting to show Secret Service attempting to “remove [A]ntifa blockages,” designed to prevent ‘Unite The Right’ 2 attendees from mobilizing. “Antifa is throwing items at the police,” noted Rosas:

Antifa, along with various far-left groups descended on Washington, DC’s downtown core to protest against Unite The Right 2 rally goers, while demonstrating against racism, police brutality and the Trump administration.
