Trumpers, fascists hold rally for J6 defendents behind walls of cops

On the 18th of September, hundreds of Trump supporters (MAGAts) and assorted fascists held their so-called "justice for J6" rally in front of the US Capitol. Huge numbers of cops protected the Capitol from them, and them from the general public. One counterprotest was held up close, and a larger one at Freedom Plaza

Update Sep 21: It is being reported that the man arrested with a gun was an off-duty CBP officer. CBP officers of course are fascists-their core job is racial enforcement. Same shit as at J6.

On Friday, Sep 24, Truist Bank launched a predawn assault on Adams-Morgan plaza and its defenders. They showed an old and revoked permit, and MPD said the "big boys downtown" said they were "good to go" but the assault reportedly failed, with the defenders still holding the plaza later that day.

At Noon on the 22nd of September, Truist Bank had planned to evict unhoused people from the plaza at 18th and Columbia Road and fence the area off. They got an unpleasant surprise: activists were holding the plaza, and the delay allowed city officials to call them out for attempting to build the fence without a permit. Had the fence been up before the inspectors arrived it would probably have been allowed to stay.
