On the 25th of March, the so-called "People's Convoy" made a final loop though DC exiting by the 14th st bridge.

MAGAt Convoy targets BLM Plaza but fails to deliver on paint removal, tar and feathers

On the 18th of March, the so-called "People's Convoy" decided to attack a new target: Black Lives Matter Plaza. In a chilling speech, they threatened to "scrape up" the paint, then tar and feather politicians and BLM activists alike. Most of the trucks were confined to the freeways as Mayor Bowser again blocked all exits, but some leakers got downtown in late afternoon. Although they illegally drove onto the plaza, they did not succeed in damaging the paint or tarring and feathering anyone.
