2020_DC_Lincoln_Protest_200626193DC -- Capitol Hill -- Lincoln Park -- BLM Protest
This was an interesting example of two competing events in the same place. The event I came to attend was this one:

Join the Rally and Teach-In for Lincoln Park
In a demonstration of solidarity and recognition of the history of Lincoln Park in Washington, D.C. members of the local, regional and...
2020_08_26E4_Floyd_Protest1DC -- Protest: George Floyd
Riot fencing has gone up around the White House bunker again.
2020_08_29B4_Floyd_Protest2DC -- Protest: George Floyd
And the riot fencing is gone again.

Nothing at all was going on when I was there other than four or five reporters getting ready to do their daily newscasts. Realistically, things are quite until another black person is murdered by cops (or Donald Trump) or until the child president says something incredibly stupid about BLM.

The BLACK LIVES MATTER letters on the street had been redone. The riot fencing around Lafayette Park was partly reopened as was the Pennsylvania Avenue street by 15th Street (which had been closed for construction since before the crisis). Very little activity.

The section of the street that had the "DEFUND THE POLICE" sign has been covered over.

Notes:
May 30: There was talk about a MAGA rally at the White House which I presume could be identified by the hats and lack of masks, and which would eventually turn into a MALA (Make America Lynch Again) protest. Realistically, when there are no public bathrooms available, hanging out waiting for a...
2020_08_28D1_Necks_March44DC -- Protest: George Floyd -- Get Your Knee Off Our Necks march
NOTE: So, no, I didn't actually get into the raly or the march. I waited in a line that looked like it was at least 7 blocks long. After an hour, by 10am I had advanced at best two blocks. Doing the math, it was clear that I wasn't going to get in for the rally (11am - 1pm). The march (1pm - 3pm)...

Many of the placards were gone now, some clearly taken down as the plywood was repainted, and others just falling apart from age.
2020_08_17E3_Floyd_Protest_PW158DC -- Protest: George Floyd -- Placards/Signs: U.S. Chamber of Commerce's covered walk
All of the signs and placards had been taken down (a sign said this was for museum collections) and the wall now had polyester (?) coverings with images from the wall from before.

The National Park Service and the Secret Service were discussing when to remove the fence around the Fortress of Arrogance. Originally, they said they planned to remove "most" of the fence at Lafayette Square on this day (Wednesday). So all of the signs were taken down and moved under the construction...

Later, I figured this was the group that Mitt Romney had been in but I just saw a section of the march so I didn't see him.

After the child president had desecrated the Lincoln Memorial doing his press conference there (where he claimed no president had been treated as badly as him while he sat in front of the assassinated president), the site has needed desperately to be restored to the actual message of Lincoln, promoting...

After the video of George Floyd being killed in Minneapolis as a police officer kept his knee of his head (Floyd's "I can't breathe" protests were ignored), riots erupted in several cities around the United States. Things were relatively quiet when I visited places in DC but things heated up later in...
