Climate Protesters disrupt Congressional baseball game

Less than a day before the Congressional Baseball Game and a scheduled disruption, Sen Joe Manchin caved on allowing at least SOME climate provisions into the big "Inflation Reduction Act of 2022." While CCAN cancelled their plans to disrupt the game, Shut Down DC and other groups did not. Protesters displayed banners inside before storms temporarily shut the game down, while more protested outside. Three people were violently arrested, one tackled by 6 cops.

Twitter hides photo of protest shield w Bagshaw's name on in behind age restriction/login

On the 24th of July, the Washington Post published this report on MPD commander Jason Bagshaw's interactions with protesters. The story contains this unusable Twitter link to a photo of a shield at a 2021 protest referring to Bagshaw. Twitter cravenly hid this Black House News photo behind a login wall and age restriction.

The Black House News video no longer available on Twitter without an account, available here to anyone

The Twitter link is probably to the video (downloaded prior to restriction) from which this still was taken. It was of a Jan 30,2021 "Fuck the Police" march

Jason Bagshaw shoots, kills man at the Wharf, 2020 video shows him throwing medic at BLM protest

The cop who shot and killed a man at the Wharf on Saturday night has been identified as no other than Jason Bagshaw, infamous for assaults and general abuse at protests and especially Black Lives Matter marches. MPD claims and Bagshaw's stories about how the shooting took place are highly questionable, especially as Bagshaw was not wearing a functioning body camera when he opened fire.
