Ozark Indivisible protest of Cotton office in Springdale featured on Rachel Maddow show

Posted By on Thu, Feb 2, 2017 at 4:51 PM

Ozark Indivisible held a demonstration outside of the Sen. Tom Cotton's Springdale office yesterday, drawing 100 protesters. The group had tried to arrange a meeting with a staffer but the meeting was cancelled without explanation, sparking the protest. We've been following their efforts this week on the blog; last night, the national media took note as well. The group's demonstration was featured as part of a segment on protests against Trump on the "Rachel Maddow Show."

"We've been focused on the big protests," Maddow said. "But take a look at what is happening in these other, largely unexpected, places." She showed footage of protests in Utah, Missouri, Colorado, Arizona, North Carolina.

And cut to Springdale: "Even in Arkansas, in the Ozarks — Sen. Tom Cotton is not used to having his Arkansas constituents piled up like this outside."

The relevant segment starts around the 9-minute mark.
