John Diamond of Arlington, Va., spent part of the day handing out fliers inviting people to a ‘‘disinauguration ball’’ as people exited the inauguration ceremony.
‘‘Not my president,’’ said the fliers, which featured the classic Obama ‘‘O'’ logo as part of the word ‘‘not.’’ They were inviting people to an event in Virginia later today.
Diamond, who didn’t vote in this past election, says he wants to encourage peace and opposes the drone attacks the president has authorized.
‘‘We’re just out here celebrating freedom,’’ Diamond said, ‘‘and trying to get people to think about the fact that we don’t need violence to control people or dictate the behaviors of other people and we should start looking for alternatives.’’
