DC's Mayday march was a two-part affair, beginning with an immigrant march from Mount Pleasant that linked up with a worker's march at Malcolm X Part before continuing to Freedom Plaza and a much larger immigrant rally at the White House. A third march started at Dupont Circle and proceeded directly to Lafayette Park. The Worker's March was marred by harassment from both neo-Nazis and police. Two protesters were detained but both were released as police could not find or fake any kind of probable cause.The march as a whole was only one part of Mayday in DC.

On the 30th of April, the IWW showed up at the Whole Foods on P st, demanding reinstatement of a worker named Julia who was fired for union organizing activity. In addition to the picket, someone dropped a banner with the same demand on it.

On the 28th of April, Beyond Extreme Energy showed up at the offices of FERC, the Federal agency that issues permits for oil and gas pipelines that make eminent domain possible. FERC currently lacks a quorum due to vacancies and is shut down, but that does not stop already approved projects.

On the 29th of April, the huge People's Climate March succeded in putting a ring of protesters all the way around the White House. At 15th st, part of the march went North and around the White House before going back down 17th st to the Monument grounds. Another part went south directly to Constitution Ave, thus closing the ring around the White House.

On the 28th of April, Indigenous marchers organzed by It Takes Roots declared a "red line" on climate change, pipelines, and fossil fuel extraction with a march around the US Capitol followed by a blockade of 3ed st.This was not long after an insulting remark from Trump about Pocohontas and breast size even though Pocohontas was a child raped by one or more settlers.The protest assembled on the SE side of the US Capitol for speakers before marching to the beat of the drums around the south side of the Capitol to the blockade side on 3rd st.

On the evening of April 27, as the People's Climate March was two days out, drummers from multiple Indigenous communities held a drum circle and round dance in front of Trump Hotel.

On the 26th of April, Trump summoned all 100 US Senators for a conference generally believed to be about a potential war against North Korea. The dictator of N Korea and wannabe dictator of "North America" have been in a situation best compared to an escalating fight in a crowded restaurant between two heavily-armed, violently psychotic Mafia dons.

On the 23rd of April, DC area antifascists held a public outreach event at GW University after a failed neo-nazi "night of the flier" did not post any of their threatened racist fliers. Neo-Nazi Jack Posobiec and one of his friends showed up and walked up to disrupt the event with shouting. Posobiec tempted a bike messenger who came to the area as part of an Alleycat ride into a fight, then had him arrested.

On the 22nd of April, Earth Day, Science Marches were held all over the planet to protest the "alternative facts," climate science denial, and all-around bad science spewing from Donald Trump and the rest of the far-right.DC's march too well over an hour to pass any single point, and the mainstream press spoke of "hundreds of thousands" marching all over the world.

Seventeen years ago, huge numbers of protesters and a masked-up Black Bloc protested and fought against corporate power in the streets of DC.An infamous mass arrest came out of a march the day before. Now the IMF and World Bank are meeting this weekend, April 21-23, with their power greatly reduced. Trump however is beginning to adopt parts of their agenda, wanting to add TPP style provisions to his proposed renegotiation of NAFTA.

On the 20th of April, Climate First! staged what may be the first snowflake of the coming avalanche of protests in DC against Trump's reborn Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. Two branches of Wells Fargo, one of the banks financing TransCanada were targetted. As 17th and Penn, activists got inside to deliver a letter. The second branch at 18th and K sts locked their doors.While the second branch made an effort to unlock their doors for customers, this sort of thing still tends to turn business away. Wells Fargo's awful reputation is also a deterrent to keeping money there.

Protest and direct action against Trump's first three months in office, mostly in DC and starting with the pre-inauguration buildup to the massive DisruptJ20 protests.

On the 15th of April, thousands marched past Trump Hotel in DC to demand that Donald Trump release his tax returns, especially before any Congressional consideration of his "tax reform" package that might be designed to benefit him directly.

On the 14th of April, the "Tax March Chicken" appeared at Trump Hotel on the eve of the April 15th Tax March. Both the Tax March Chicken and the April 15th march are demanding that Trump release his tax returns so people can see what he is hiding.

On the 12th of April, the DC Bike Party again took to the streets of DC. Before the ride even got out of Dupont Circle, motorists began honking-and one yuppie in a BMW attempted without success to ram through the cyclists. He was stopped and the ride continued without further interference.
