A mass of peaceful protesters in Washington, DC are heading to Lafayette Park near the White House.
CNN reporter Alex Marquardt said that the protesters “peacefully protest how they started this week,”.
While sitting on about 250 yoga mats donated by the advocacy group of a social worker, they said “Happy New Year” to Breonna Taylor, who was killed by the police in March and will turn 27 today.
At the intersection of 16th and 8th streets, “Black Lives Matter Plaza” was read and a new street sign was established.
“This was a violent pressure against protesters who protested just before the speech on Monday night when President declared him the president of” law and order “at the Rose Garden,” Marquardt said. Said.
Remarkably, it is the existence of law enforcement. However, city officials are waiting for a bigger demonstration on Saturday.
“These protesters came together by hundreds, thousands of people here at the Lafayette Park by the White House, and we can see almost no law enforcement behind this fence that has been strengthened throughout the week,” said Marquardt.
“The least law enforcement force I’ve seen all week and telling how peaceful these protests are. There’s no curfew in Washington city tonight. But now city officials say they’re expecting a big demonstration tomorrow, the biggest thing they’ve been waiting for since they started in Washington.”
