Protesters marched in Washington, D.C. throughout the afternoon and evening Saturday.
A “DC Queer and Trans Black History Month March and Rally” was organized at 2 p.m. by the Total Liberation Collective and the Palm Collective.
Later in the evening, Black Lives Matter protesters marched north from Dupont Circle.
Chants of “Black lives, they matter here” and “If we don’t get it, burn it down” rang out from the crowd.
“We are here tonight because black lives matter,” the group recited at the end of the protest. “Despite black lives mattering, black people are still dying at the hands of the police paid for by our tax dollars.”
