Here Are The D.C. Protests Happening Over Fourth Of July Weekend
Nathan Diller

As D.C. gears up for an unusual Fourth of July in the wake of COVID-19, protests that have taken place across the region for more than a month will continue this weekend.

For the sixth weekend in a row following the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, demonstrators will take to the streets to protest police brutality and racial injustice — with some specifically aimed at reframing the holiday.

Federal and local officials have been sending mixed messages about how locals should celebrate the Fourth. President Donald Trump will hold his second “Salute to America” event along the National Mall and near the White House, while D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser has urged everyone to stay at or near home to help curb the spread of coronavirus.

We’ve rounded up the demonstrations taking place this weekend. This list is not comprehensive and will be updated.

1. Saturday should be a busy day

the weather is slightly cooler than today so it should be better for the marchers.

Are DUers going to any of the marches?
