As Tax Day approaches on Tuesday, April 18, protesters organized a Saturday demonstration in front of the Capitol to demand that President Donald Trump release his tax returns.

He’s the first president in nearly 40 years to not disclose such information. Similar protests were held across the country.

Here’s the D.C. protest, in photos:
