Climate Strike DC

Over the course of the July 4 weekend, several DC area Starbucks outlets were observed with code locks on restroom doors reactivated. They were turned off (but never removed) in the aftermath of the infamous Philadelphia incident where an African-American businessman was arrested after asking to use to toilet. It looks like Starbucks's plan from day 1 was to turn the locks off only long enough for the uproar to die down.
