On April 9 and 10 millions of illegals marched in about 110 cities all over America . As many flags in these rallies the one on the right is flown in the distressed (or upside-down) position. For this, the demonstrators were much criticized in the US press. According to US law: No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America (...) The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property. Between the Washington Monument (seen in the background) and the US Capitol.
