two have scared off in berkeley under the protective banner of free speech only to then turn on each other, this time with 20 arrests. we asked berkeley councilwoman kate harrison, was this a political rally or a rumble? >> a rumble. it became a rumble. >> is berkeley the new ground zero for this? >> i don't know. i don't know. i certainly hope not. >> i'd probably say it was both. >> it's challenging. they had helmets, shields, weapons. and this is something we really haven't seen before. >> something that they may be seeing again and possibly regularly. city officials told me on and off camera that one of the good things was that nobody instantly on the by side got hurt. >> the man shown on that video punching the woman is a self-described white nationalist. 30-year-old nathan dimigo is a marine and undergraduate at

california state stanislaus. he's the founder of a group called identity europa which places flyers at college campuses claiming white superiority. the town hall in san francisco today was so raucous, police had to be called in. >> [ yelling ] sit down! >> you can see the senator there getting drowned out at times by angry constituents calling her a sell-out and accusing her of not standing up to the trump administration. other protesters demanded that she retire. this is the first town hall that feinstein has held since she was elected in 1992. kpix 5 political reporter melissa caen was there. the senator did have news on how she's taking on the trump administration. >> it got pretty rowdy in there but the crowd did manage to stay

6:04 pm
is leading an effort asking each one of us to contribute an amount of money for a court case and we're looking at that because we want to see what's the top number and once we know what the liability is, then we can make a decision and the hope is that there will be 41 of us that will be on that court case. >> reporter: 41 senators as plaintiffs in a lawsuit against the president would be completely explosive. it could impact negotiations on everything from the affordable care act to the budget. that's not all that happened today. when an audience member said she was nervous about the trump administration rolling back the protections of the violence against women act, the senator did something politicians are loathed to do. she made a promise. >> i will give you my assurance now that nothing will happen to the violence against women's act. >> reporter: all this was well received by the audience, but

6:11 pm
on simpson beach want the state to back off. proposed legislation would make it much more difficult for homeowners built after january 1st, 1977 to fortify their property along the coast. it would require a strict permitting process for construction of armoring structures along the shoreline if they're allowed at all. >> people have bought properties along the ocean or beach and have built things along the beach and now the legislature is proposing retroactively to say those properties can't be protected. >> reporter: if passed, sea walls may not be able to be repaired if damaged, leaving homeowners behind it forever exposed to the sea. it's all in the name of natural shore lines. the bill, backed by the coastal commission, argues things like sea walls cause erosion and restrict natural habitats while also inhibiting public access and recreation along the coast.
