Patriot Front heckled by antifa, expelled from antichoice march possibly by organizers

On the 21st of January, the neo-Nazi/open Fascist group Patriot Front attempted to sieze the lead position in the antichoice/forced birth "March for Life." At first they marched forward while MPD bike cops pushed back anti-Fascist and pro-choice counterprotesters. Soon, however, they had to withdraw to the sidewalk and make a left turn out of the march.

Protesters block street, run projection as Manchin and Sinema torpedo voting rights bill

On the 19th of January, protesters gathered a few blocks back from the US Capitol as the Senate attempted to vote on the voting rights bill only to be blocked by a GOP filibuster. The treason of Sens Manchin and Sinema prevented any modification of filibuster rules, so the GOP now owns the election machinery in enough states to all but guarantee a Trump 2024 "win."

Black Lives Matter Plaza vandalized two days before forced-birth march

Two days before the annual anti-Roe v Wade forced birth march, unknown attackers vandalized BLM Plaza with "Jesus" and "All Lives Matter" graffiti. "All Lives Matter" is widely recognized as a code phrase for "White Lives Matter" or sometimes the pro-police "Blue Lives Matter." The timing and the "Jesus" scrawl suggest a connection to Friday's march.

16th Annual MLK Day Peace Walk focusses on voting rights

On the 17th of January, the 16th annual MLK Day Peace Walk marched into Anacostia over the newly rebuilt Frederick Douglass Memorial (S Cap St) Bridge. A major focus of this march was voting rights, with the lead banner demanding "Deliver for Voting Rights." Senators Manchin and Sinema are working for Trump every day by blocking proposals to bypass the filibuster to permit Federal voting rights legislation to pass. Without it, the wave of GOP voter suppression laws makes a Trump 2024 election "victory" all but a done deal.
