Code Pink, Popular Resistance protest as Trump summons all 100 Senators for N Korea war conference

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. As protesters set up to denounce the brewing war, the police closed or claimed to close Lafayette Park, as they so often do at "convenient" moments these days.

AIPAC protests Day 2

On the 27th of March, at least three different actions were carried out against the AIPAC dinner gala at the Verizon Center. IfNotNow projected an image beginning at around sunset while Code Pink, Avaaz, and others set up on F st where most of the AIPAC delegates had to go to enter. Still another group set up alongside the arena on 7th st about a block further north.

Hordes of AIPAC delegates had to pass protesters to get to the building

Chaos at AIPAC: IfNotNow blocks entrances, JDL violence, protests continue anyway

On the 26th of march, the progressive Jewish organization IfNotNow charged the doors of the Washington Convention Center and locked down to blockade both entrances to AIPAC's annual convention. The blockades did not last all day, but the protests did, even after JDL counterprotesters assaulted some of the activists on the scene. Both Jewish and Palestinan protesters stayed put to oppose AIPAC essentially the entire day.
