Interview with organizers of a group in Lancaster, Ohio which has organized Black Lives Matter solidarity protests and engaged in community education efforts. They call themselves The Instigators . For 7 weeks since June the weekly vigils they organized were peaceful and without serious incidents, although they were frequently confronted by people holding opposing views. Then, several weeks ago, one visiting protester was assaulted by "Blue Lives Matter" counter-protesters. Since then, the bulk of the protesters have been "alt-right" types from out of town, and the Instigators group has received numerous threats via social media.

Also; coverage of last week's rallies to save the U.S. Postal Service.
