Map. History of District Columbia conflict

9 August 2020
Protesters outside U.S. Capitol.
More than 17,0000 members of The National Guard have been deployed in response to nationwide protests, as governors from 23 states - and the District of Columbia - have activated the Guard in the last week, the bureau said in a statement
I am absolutely BAFFLED by US Park Police and Secret Service right now. Maybe two hundred protestors were sitting on H Street in front of Lafayette Park and police just formed a line in the park in full riot gear. Provocative and totally unnecessary
Protest underway right at Lafayette Square in front of the White House- DC Police have already blocked traffic on 16th Street. GeorgeFloyd
Protesters later went on to chant "no violence." One told me although he understands the anger behind this weekend's looting and destruction, this protest is committed to remaining peaceful to advance its cause
Protests continue on 16th Street just north of the White House. This group later chanted, "We keep us safe, f*** the police"
