FTP March ends in Defund MPD home demo against Councilmember Allen

DC Councilmember Charles Allen has equated bills to cut MPD funding anywhere from 2% to 15% with defunding the department entirely. On the 25th of June, a "Fuck the Police" march ended at his home demanding the complete, 100% abolition of the police department. This was the second night in a row the Councilmember received a home demo around this issue.
