Hundreds of people gathered at the National Rifle Association headquarters in Fairfax, Va., early Friday to protest gun violence and, more specifically, a controversial NRA recruitment video released last week. Protesters braved stormy weather to march 17 miles from the NRA building to the Justice Department headquarters in Washington, D.C.

Truthdig correspondent Michael Nigro followed the march, which was planned by the organizers of the Women’s March on Washington that took place earlier this year. Take a look at his multimedia coverage below.

4:45 p.m. PDT: After a massive storm split up them up, the demonstrators regrouped and marched the final miles to the Justice Department. Watch the conclusion of the march below:
