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...

A BLM fence protest arrived at the same time as a group of MAGA kids did. Things were peaceful though. (Partially reviewed)

2020_DC_Floyd_Protest_WH_2020Q2533DC -- Protest: George Floyd -- Events around Lafayette Park and BLM Plaza (2020A May-June)
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_DC_Floyd_Protest_WH_2020Q3120DC -- Protest: George Floyd -- Events around Lafayette Park and BLM Plaza (2020B July-September)
Notes:
August 2: 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).
August 17: The DEFUND THE POLICE letters,...

2020_DC_Necks_March_20082844DC -- 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)...

2020_DC_Floyd_Protest_FP_SI32DC -- Protest: George Floyd -- Placards/Signs: Lafayette Square fence -- Sue Israel murals
I ran into Sue and her brother putting up murals that she had made. Later, she replaced them with duplicates that stayed up until all of the BLM pieces were removed from the fence on January 30, 2021.

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...

During this period, the protest wall went through several iterations. Notes:
Before August 2, chunks of the plywood had been repainted to cover over some of the messages.
Before August 17, all of the signs and placards had been taken down (a sign said this was for museum collections) and the wall now...

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 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.
