2020_09_25B2_Prayer_March7DC -- Event: Franklin Graham's DC Prayer March @ Mall
The evangelicals assemble. Being an atheist like Trump (with luck, one of the few things we share in common), this is not something I have any interest in attending but it's hard to avoid right now. (Partially reviewed)
2020_09_26A_Prayer_March34DC -- Event: Franklin Graham's DC Prayer March @ Mall
A largely maskless crowd (the sooner to meet JC I guess) talking about how good has become evil and evil has become good. You could have thught that meant they were anti-Trump, but nope.

Including protesters. Interestingly, later that day it was announced that Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi annulled most of an extraordinary Nov. 22 decree that gave him near-absolute power and plunged the country into a deeply divisive political crisis that has seemed to worsen by the day.
2006_DC_Falun3DC -- Protest: Falun Gong protesters
These guys have been protesting in DC for years now. Lots of leaflets. Lots of complaints about China.

Frankly, they strike me as a bit of a cult and I'm always amused when people protest in the United...

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.

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)...
