Police clashed with abortion rights protesters in downtown Los Angeles on Friday, June 24, after the US Supreme Court overturned its landmark Roe v Wade decision.
Footage by Hess Wesley shows heated scenes as a firework explodes near a group of officers. One officer can be seen pushing over a woman who identifies herself as a journalist.
Later, protesters shout at police to help a man they have detained on the ground after he begins shaking. People can be heard shouting, “He’s having a f***ing seizure!”
Protests continued in Los Angeles and other major US cities on Saturday. Credit: Hess Wesley via Storyful
