Rally for trans and gender expansive students held before Fairfax County school board meeting

On the 6th of October, a meeting of the Fairfax County school board at Luther Jackson Middle School included an agenda item of favorable concern to transgender students. A rally was held prior to the meeting in support of this agenda item and more generally to protect trans and gender expansive students from the current wave of hate and attacks. Only a half dozen presumed Christian Nationalists dared counterprotest.

Press conference by fetus stealing PAAU disrupted at DOJ

On the 5th of October, so-called "Progressive Anti Abortion Uprisng" (PAAU) held a press conference at the Dept of Justice to decry the Federal prison time they may get for storming abortion clinics.

DC marches in solidarity w women's uprising in Iran

On the 1st of October, Iranians marched in DC and many other US cities in solidarity with the hard-pressed fighters in the women's uprising against theocracy in their home country. Local activists turned out to support them. The uprising began when security forces murdered Mahsa Amini over a veil worn "improperly." Much like police murders in the US, this has set off a firestorm of resistance.

On Sep 30th in a Rockville, MD courtroom, Judge Koch ignored recommendations for prosecutors and sentenced 13 Declare Emergency activists to 4 days in jail for blockading the Capitol Beltway on July 4. That's right-the judge gave them jail time prosecutors were NOT asking for, on his own initiative.
