Washington Candlelight Vigil Commemorates Anniversary of Capitol Attack

Hundreds gathered in Washington, on the evening of January 6, marking one year since supporters of former President Donald Trump attacked the Capitol building.

This footage, filmed by Brendan Gutenschwager, shows a large group gathered at the ’January 6 Candlelight Vigil for Democracy,’ as congressional staffers shared their experiences from the insurrection.

Earlier, both the US Senate and House held moments of silence, with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer saying the commemoration was “for all of those who have helped us then, and help us now." Credit: Brendan Gutenschwager via Storyful
