I have more photos from today soon.
I have been hampered by a torn tendon and could not go on march today but here is a video of people getting peppered sprayed at the Airo Space Museum, I would like to remind people that this is an older crowd than the one on Wall Street!

You don't want to get off the main streets or be there after dark. That is no joke my friend.

That was in the news where it was said the museum had a problem with the banners and stuff coming in with them. That they were asked to not do that and some of them didn't listen causing the police to come in with only one arrest. Not too bad IMO compared to how it could have turned out.

Freeze the area with the torn tendon till you get to the doctor. Don't know where you have that, but that can be the kind of thing needing surgery should you not pay attention to it. OK!
Take care, don't risk your health.

That is very true. D.C. after dark is so bad that even
the dogs carry guns.

Thanks for the advice, been to doctors, just started rehab after wearing boot for over a month and a half.
Just hope it heals ok and I don't need surgery, ankle/foot tendon.

Nearly 1,000 peaceful protesters marched to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum today to stage a nonviolent die-in under the drone exhibit which represents the glorification of robotic warfare and the mass killing of innocent civilians.



Upon entering the doors to the free public institution, demonstrators were denied entry, physically beaten back by Smithsonian Protection Service security officers and at least a dozen were pepper sprayed. The cloud of pepper spray was so thick that it hit nearby tourists and a female security officer.
