On the 18th of March, DC's Mayor Muriel Bowser held her annual State of the District address.

Video: Jail refuses to allow Code Pink to visit 3 min 3 sec

On the 9th of March, Code Pink tried to visit Chelsea Manning at the Alexandria, VA "Adult Detention Center" at 2001 Mill Road near the Eisenhower Ave Metro station. Guards claimed she could not have ANY visitors until she was "fully processed in" up to 72 hours later. There is a good chance this is a lie, as it was not the policy at the nearby Arlington County Jail in Feb 2017.

On the 12th of Feb, migrants holding Temporary Protected Status backed by a massive crowd of supporters marched from the White House to Capitol Hill to demand legal permanent residency.

On Jan 24, an unknown person walked into Comet Pizza while it was open and people were inside, squirted a flammable liquid onto the back curtains and set the curtain on fire. A fast-reacting person with a fire extinguisher got the fire out before it could spread, saving the building and possibly many lives. As of this writing the arsonist is still at large.

On the 19th of January, the Women's March totally overflowed their Freedom Plaza rally site, filling that area plus a short march route past Trump Hotel and around a few blocks almost continuously.
