Banner hang over Connecticut Ave in solidarity with J20 defendents

The July 20 to 27 week of solidarity continues! As afternoon rush hour started on the 20th, activists hung a banner from the Dupont Circle overpass on Connecticut Ave northbound. The banner read "80 years for protesting Trump? #DropJ20" and showed the umbrella logo of solidarity with those facing decades in prison for daring to oppose the inauguration of Donald Trump.

3rd Trumpcare bill stopped after disruptive protests in Hart Building, Sen vote on possible ACA repeal bill 7-25

Update 7-24: Die-in at US Capitol as GOP plans 4th attempt. Sen McCain to return to Congress Tues 7-25 for vote(presumed YES), only one GOP public no at this point. Koch Bros piggy bank reported closed until GOP gets both Trumpcare and Trump tax bill passed.

On the 17th of July, the world got more proof that protest works and direct action gets the goods. Hours after a highly disruptive civil disobedience protest against Trumpcare inside the Hart building, two more GOP Senators declared they would vote no. With 4 no votes from the GOP and 100% nos from the Dems, this bill is again dead. No doubt Trump will try yet again, but Trumpcare has just struck out with three defeats in a row.

No Justice No Pride marches for Transgender Liberation

On the 13th of July, No Justice No Pride returned to the streets of DC. With attacks on transgender women soaring and two violent assaults recently, the cops seem more interested in singling out people of color for unpaid bus fare. In addition they are still hassling transgender sex workers as though Stonewall never happened. In the face of these outrages, No Justice No Pride is saying enough is enough.

Protesters gather at White House as multiple official sources call Russiagate treason

On the 11th of July, protesters showed outside the White House as the swirling "Russiagate" scandal took a new turn. Donald Trump Jr released emails showing he told Russian spy agencies he "welcomed" their interference in the 2016 election on behalf of his father. He released them only because newspapers were about to. Both former Watergate prosecutor Nick Akerman and Sen Tim Kaine called Trump Jr's meeting with Russian officials "treason."

Update July 12: Reps Brad Sherman and Al Green file articles of impeachment against Trump
