On the 18th of January, police assaulting the Atlanta Forest Defense/Stop Cop City treesits shot and killed forest defender "Tortuguita" or "Tort." He was murdered after a cop was shot by another cop in a blue-on-blue "friendly fire" incident. Since then vigils have been held across Turtle Island. One of them drew an estimated 50-75 people to Malcolm X Park here in DC on Jan 24.

At least 15 cops stood around watching Malcolm X Park as the vigil got underway.
