Hands Off DC march/CD protests Congress blocking DC criminal justice reform

Video from clips by Our Rights DC 1 min 41 sec

Congress and the GOP have blocked DC's criminal justice reform bill in an ugly preview of things to come. On March 8, protesters marched on Capitol Hill and staged a civil disobedience against this interference, demanding statehood and the right to be left alone. Seventeen arrests were reported.

If this campaign fails, there is the real risk of the GOP in coming years banning abortion, restricting birth control, persecuting LGBTQ folks, and possibly even banning covid vaccines in DC (as may be about to happen in FL) all thanks to Congress's control and veto over DC Home Rule.
