No Justice No Pride march to defund MPD brings crowd to Mayor Bowser's house

On the 13th of June, a hundreds strong No Justice No Pride march and motorcade that originated in MD showed up at the home of DC Mayor Muriel Bowser. They were there to demand that MPD be defunded, sex work be legalized, and more. On the approach march a sound system blasted NWA's "Fuck the Police," and at the Mayor's house dancers breakdanced right up to the cops.

June 13th was originally to be the date of the Capitol Pride march, which was cancelled months ago due to the pandemic. Since then governments have seized unprecedented powers and a wave of police violence has erupted, with police shootings now taking place seemingly every day. Another person was murdered by a police officer less than 24 hours before this protest, this time in Atlanta. Due to this ongoing plague of police brutality and murder, No Justice No Pride had no choice but to armor themselves in masks and meet the dangers head-on.
