Some video highlights of the DC rally 2 min 14 sec

On the 4th of April, several of the big liberal and Democrat-aligned NGO groups held hundreds of rallies from coast to coast demanding that the full Mueller report be released to the public and that Congress get it entirely without redactions. One of the rallies was in front of the White House, where speakers suggested the tiny "summary" released by the attorney general might not even be an accurate assessment of the report's true contents.

Grand jury resistor Chelsea Manning is being held in solitary confinement for refusing to testify to a grand jury presumably investigating Assange and Wikileaks. On Monday, April 1, her attorneys filed what is known as a "grumbles" motion for her release. This is a motion to show that no amount of incarceration can induce the defendent to testify. Since grand jury holds are required to be "probative" and not "punitive," if the judge agrees Chelsea will never talk, he has to release her.

Video: marching on the IMF and World Bank 2 min 35 sec

On the 30th of March, a protest against NATO and against US intervention in Venezuala marched from the White House to the IMF and World Bank, two weeks before the 2019 Spring Meetings.

The MD State Highway Administration has announced a "traffic relief" plan for the Beltway and I-270 that has been reported elsewhere to include widening both roads and making all of the new lanes "variable-toll" lanes that are meant to ensure the wealthy can bypass traffic congestion. States have learned the hard way that widening roads doesn't reduce congestion, so the focus now is paid bypasses for the rich.

On the 16th of March, the Arlington County Board met to discuss a multi-million dollar giveaway to Amazon and Jeff Bezos for HQ2, possibly the richest man in the world. Protesters disrupted the hearing, calling affordable housing and similar priorities more important than Amazon.

On the 16th of March, protesters marched from the White House to Trump Hotel and finally the Inter-American Development Bank, opposing US intervention in Venezuala. A much smaller group of counterprotesters siding with Venezuala's rival, US backed, self-declared, fake "president" Juan Guaidó also showed up.

On the 14th of March, "Kremlin Annex" protesters held another of their still going on several times a week protests at the White House demanding that Trump step down, be impeached, or be removed for unfitness (25th Amendment).

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.
