2 counter-protesters were arrested in Harrisburg yesterday at the ‘March Against Sharia’

The anti-Sharia demonstration was organized by ACT, a group that calls itself the ‘NRA of national security’ and has been labeled a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. It drew around 60 people to the capitol building, while the counter-protest drew around 50, according to PennLive.
