On the 6th of December the fast and furious pace of protests against police murders of African-Americans continued with a 3PM die-in at Union Station.

This was followed later in the day by a street march that began shortly after 6PM on U street. This march went downtown, to Georgetown, and crossed Key Bridge into Arlington before deciding on the Metro to disperse to lose two undercover cops. Just before Georgetown there was an ugly incident where a US Capitol Policeman assaulted one of the protesters.
Just before 9PM marchers reached Georgetown and shut it down on a rainy Saturday night.

One poster said on Twitter that Metro was kept out of Georgetown in an effort to exclude exactly this, but obviously it didn’t work. From Georgetown protesters then marched into Rosslyn over the Key Bridge. Arlington cops seemed to know where protesters were going in advance according to the live video feed, so protesters ducked in the Metro to return to DC. At this point, someone discovered two undercover cops in the protest. With undercovers present, protesters decided to disperse until the next day.
