On the 13th of June, a hundreds strong No Justice No Pride march and
motorcade that originated in MD showed up at the home of DC Mayor Muriel
Bowser. They were there to demand that MPD be defunded, sex work be
legalized, and more. On the approach march a sound system blasted NWA's
"Fuck the Police," and at the Mayor's house dancers breakdanced right up
to the cops.
June 13th was originally to be the date of the Capitol Pride march,
which was cancelled months ago due to the pandemic. Since then
governments have seized unprecedented powers and a wave of police
violence has erupted, with police shootings now taking place seemingly
every day. Another person was murdered by a police officer less than 24
hours before this protest, this time in Atlanta. Due to this ongoing
plague of police brutality and murder, No Justice No Pride had no choice
but to armor themselves in masks and meet the dangers head-on.
