Mayor Bowser raiding homeless camps again

One of Mayor Bowser's signature programs has been "fighting homelessness" by sending police and trash collectors against tent cities erected by the homeless.Earlier this week, Bowser's forces again destroyed the homeless camp in Rock Creek Park near Whitehurst Freeway. Then, on the afternoon of the 16th of February, a trash truck and a few other vehicles were parked menacingly close to a homeless camp on the east end of town.

On the 19th of February, GLBTQ activists held a "make-out" protest in front of Trump Hotel. This was a spin-off from similar events held in front of Trump Tower in New York City. Organizers have stated "President Trump insists he stands for the LGBTQ+ community, the LGBTQ+ community stands for the fair and just treatment of all underprivileged groups." This is a clear rejection of the "Lavendar Shield" strategy by which some right-wing forces try to pit the GLBTQ and Muslim communities against each other.

On the 18th of February, protesters gathered at the US Attorney's office to demand that these charges be dropped.
