Ninth Circuit slaps down Trump's Muslim Ban on appeal

On the 12th of June, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit refused to reinstate the revised version of Trump's Muslim ban/travel ban. It didn't help Donald Trump that he had opened his mouth on Twitter to say things contradicting the legal arguments for his "revised" travel ban.

Huge GLBTQ equality march takes the streets against Trump

On the 11th of June, the massive "Equality March" or national Pride took to the streets of DC, taking over much of the area around the White House and the Mall.

On the 10th of June, No Justice No Pride first marched over the Capitol Pride route, then used hard lockdowns to block the MPD, Lockheed-Martin, and Wells Fargo contingents. The rest of the parade rerouted around the blocked streets. MPD's contingent withdrew, unknown if they managed to get back into the parade. Wells Fargo got stuck, had to rejoin the parade at the back by the garbage trucks. Lockheed-Martin's contingent was also blocked. No reports of arrests, even at the blockades.

On the evening of the 9th of June, No Justice No Pride opened the mobilization against corporate/assimilationist fake Pride with an evening march through some of the most yuppified streets in DC's GLBTQ community. A highlight of the march was a solidarity stop at Matchbox, a pizzaria being picketed by some of their workers because they fire people who object to problem working conditions.
