The march demanded that killer cops be sent to prison, and that all other cops resign. This event was held in memory of Tyre Nichols and in solidarity with activists in Memphis. Cops hurredly barricaded the station as marchers approached, apparently the destination of the march caught them by surprise

Right-wing groups are still screaming about the protests, and protesters keep coming back. Christian Nationalism, misogyny,...

On the 29th of December, the final performance of "A Drag Queen Christmas" took place in Clearwater, Florida. Members of Cavalry Christian Worship Center (an extreme Christian Cult) and 3 or 4 Proud Boys were unable to overcome defenders much less attempt to shut down the show itself. Again the Governor's interference and threats were unable to stop the show, again the show went on. Some attendees cheered counterprotesters on the way in and out.

On the 13th of October, the G20 (20 richest nations reps) attempted to hold a press conference in a ballroom on the 20th st side of one of the IMF's buildings in DC. Outside, protesters pounded drums, blew whistles and air horns, and even rang cowbells. The noise was so loud protesters were issued ear plugs-and it was admitted the noise interfered with the pres conference.

On the 13th of October, Arlington County Public School students defied threats from Fascists and met with the school board to condemn VA Governor Youngkin's vicious anti-trans student policies. They demanded that Arlington hold the line and stand up to this MAGAt governor and the hate he is spreading as much as possible. Editor's note: Nationally an incredible wave of hate has been spreading against LGBTQ folks as a whole and especially against trans people. In the wake of Dobbs and spreading...

On the 12th of October, climate and Indigenous centric protests against the Fall 2022 meetings of the IMF and World Bank began. First up was an evening bike ride from Murrow Park in front of the World Bank to DAR Constitution Hall. Plenty of cops were there but there was seemingly no other activity in or around the building. The G20 Climate and Energy Ministers were supposed to be having a fancy dinner there but seemed to be absent, presumably due to the presence of protesters.

One of a great many Indigenous People's Day events was held on the Mall in Washington DC near 3ed st SW. So-called "Columbus Day" is NOT, and as Jay Winter Nightwolf explained at the rally, that was not even his real name. Instead of celebrating a rapist and murderer who was almost halfway around the world from where he thought he was (as lost as is possible), more and more folks now celebrate Indigenous People's Day in October.

On Indigenous People's Day, the 10th of October, Declare Emergency and fifteen Indigenous activists from Minnesota sat down on the Capitol Beltway in almost the same place protesters had blocked it on July 4. The road was blocked nearly an hour. Again many were arrested. Declare Emergency is demanding that President Biden declare a national climate emergency(as he ALMOST did a while back), and then back it up by halting all fossil fuel extraction on federal and indigenous lands. In Minnesota,...

On the 8th of October, the Women's March returned to Capitol Hill for another mass march against SCOTUS's decision to scuttle Roe Vs Wade and permit about half the US to ban abortion outright. At least two groups of counterprotesters and several far-right media teams(notably the Daily Signal) were driven away by more militant protesters. One protester was arrested but released shortly later, it is possible this arrest (by Capitol Police) was intended as a diversion to pull protesters away from...

Video of protesters marching on Amy Coney Barrett's block on Oct 7. (backstory) On the 7th of October, yet another protest at "Justice" Amy Coney Barrett's house encountered opposition from far-right neighbors. The pro-Nazi and pro forced birth messages they chalked on the trail to Amy's block were no surprise given racist and misogynistic statements made at prior protests by Karens and Kens who live on Amy Coney Barrett's block.

On the 6th of October, a meeting of the Fairfax County school board at Luther Jackson Middle School included an agenda item of favorable concern to transgender students. A rally was held prior to the meeting in support of this agenda item and more generally to protect trans and gender expansive students from the current wave of hate and attacks. Only a half dozen presumed Christian Nationalists dared counterprotest.

Whoever commanded the Montgomery County police presence at last week's Kavanaugh protest seems to have been replaced after all the videotaped harassment and threats. This time around, the Oct 5 Kavauagh and Roberts residential protests went smoothly, with no harassment or problems of any kind. Both Kavanaugh and Roberts have whined publicly about activists at their homes and elsewhere calling out the current Supreme Court as illegitimate. With all the GOP cheating to steal a seat from Obama,...

On the 5th of October, so-called "Progressive Anti Abortion Uprisng" (PAAU) held a press conference at the Dept of Justice to decry the Federal prison time they may get for storming abortion clinics. Two pro-choice counterprotesters called out their hypocrisy, one responding to their whining about Jane's Revenge with "Jane is watching!" The entire event was livestreamed so this is certainly true. PAAU is infamous as the group that burglarized a DC area clinic and stole five...

On the 1st of October, Iranians marched in DC and many other US cities in solidarity with the hard-pressed fighters in the women's uprising against theocracy in their home country. Local activists turned out to support them. The uprising began when security forces murdered Mahsa Amini over a veil worn "improperly." Much like police murders in the US, this has set off a firestorm of resistance. Oct 1 was a global day of action to support resistance inside Iran. There were marches in...

Once a year, the "ten-four DC" trucker rally sets up on the Mall, polishing and showing off their semis and talking to the public about trucking industry issues and concerns. This year they have a problem: the far-right/antivax/1776 movement convoy MAGAts are trying to take it over. This is a classic example of a strategy known as "entryism" in which a smaller, more radical organization attempts to infiltrate and take control of a much larger group. From the organizers'...

On the 29th of September, protesters outside Supreme Court "Justice" Alito's home emphasized that he and the Supreme Court are now considered illegitimate by tens of millions if not more. He and Roberts had been whining about this growing realization on social media. This in turn told protesters what to focus on.

On the 28th of September, protesters returned to the homes of Supreme Court "Justices" Kavanaugh and Roberts. At Kavanaughs, one cop hissed threats for clicking drumsticks, another got on the PA and read out a "warning" implying use of "amplified sound" which drums are not by anyone could lead to arrests of everyone. Protesters kept the action going.

On the 24th of September, J6 insurgents and their supporters returned to DC for the 2nd September in a row. There may have been as few as 80 of them. Two large groups of Proud Boys were spotted outside the city but may have flaked out or othewise not made it in. Cops aggressively fended off and attempted to kettle counterprotesters. Even though the aggressive kettling attempts and dispersal warnings were the work of Capitol Police, there were reports that coordination of the police reponse (in...

Video by Alex Murphy of an Our Rights DC activist speaking at the Friday, Sep 23 Fridays for the Future/Climate Strike action. Speech focusses on Indigenous aspects of fossil fuel production. It is notable that colonization historically has had capturing raw materials and resources as a major objective. On the 23ed of September, the "Fridays for the Future" youth climate strike returned to the area around the US Capitol. In addition to demands directly concerning fossil fuels, demands...
