On the 21st of May, the Poor People’s Campaign returned to the US Capitol for a second round of civil disobedience. While cops lined the street to prevent a second round of obstructive street protest, activists went inside the US Capitol itself and protested there. Reports at the scene were of approximately 50 arrests resulting.
This time around, arrestees were released at the scene with a later court date for arraignment. The previous week, US Capitol Police ran out of jail space.
