The Floyd George protests on June 2 stayed peaceful as the police did not choose to start a fight this time around. Trump's choice to gas protesters just so he could walk across H st stunned the world and may have cost him a great deal of cooperation from Mayor Bowser and MPD.

Update late night: video on Twitter of cops or troops firing pepper spray, another video shows cops firing rubber bullets first, water bottles thrown in RESPONSE.

URGENT: police attempting to raid houses sheltering protesters after night of cop terror

On the night of June 1, police responded to at least one house on Swann Street sheltering protesters affected by tear gas and exhausted from dodging kettles with an attempt to enter the house. As this is posted cops claim to have gotten a 9-11 call from inside, which is almost impossible.

During the day on the 1st of June, peaceful protesters "took a knee" and otherwise protested the murder of George Floyd and so many others by police. Just after Mayor Bowser's 7PM curfew, cops attacked with tear gas, shields, and sticks to split the crowd-so Donald Trump could cross H st on foot to give a speech at St John's Church.

Third night of fighting for George Floyd escalated rather than stopped by Mayor's curfew

The last day of May in DC was another long day and long night of protest. Mayor Bowser declared an 11PM curfew after protesters were not dispersed by police fireworks, but police offensives to enforce the curfew against protesters failed. As police violence escalated protesters responded with force and fire, and one of the fires burned a White House utility shack(wrongly reported on Twitter as a guard shack).

DC Uprising for George Floyd forcibly blocked from Lafayette, police cars burned in response

On the 30th of May, Donald Trump invited fascists to a "MAGA night" in front of the White House in response to the previous night's protests. No such thing could occur after protesters beseiged the entire area and several times tore down barricades meant to deny access to Lafayette Sq. As police violence and threats of kettles escalated, a dumpster and police car went up in flames. Still further riot squad aggression led to trashing and debris fires in more locations.

MD anarchist defies Hogan's string of stay at home arrests by heading to the hills

As of May 2, WUSA and other media outlets report that 35 people have been arrested in MD for defying Governor Hogan's stay-at-home order. In response, a MD anarchist shot a "fuck you" video for the Governor-from the Rocky Mountains, about 2,000 miles farther than Hogan wanted anyone in MD travelling.
