On the 26th of August, climate protesters took over the streets of downtown Rockville, including Rt 28, one of two main roads. After a march through the center of town and past Richard Montgomery High School, marchers returned to nearly the starting point. There, moving the "eco-village" props into the street provided cover for young activists to set up the real blockade. Five young activists and two staying with them in solidarity were arrested.
