A fourth arrest has been made. This arrest, in the 1200 block of Federal Ave E, is for a property damage that occurred earlier.
Some federal officers pressed north on 3rd Ave beyond the courthouse and past Salmon. Others advanced west on Main St. Agents continued to intermittently set off devices that emitted gas, sound and smoke to keep clearing people out. (photo, at the former Elk, by @bethnakamura )
The protest then headed to in front of the White House. A protester was taken by the USSS in front of Pennsylvania Ave into an adjacent federal building. Unclear what he did.A couple men then splintered off from the group and spray painted “F*ck Trump” on the building. @CBSNews
Here is video of the @SecretService officers taking one of the protesters into the federal building across from White House just after the marchers got to PA Ave. Unclear what occurred prior. Important to note: The overwhelming majority of the protest has been peaceful. @CBSNews
Big news! We will open a kitchen on Pennsylvania Ave this week to join private sector effort to feed federal employees during the shutdown. It’s only fair to feed Americans in need! #ChefsForFeds ????? Follow for more details!
They’re flying off the shelves! 100% of our profits go to Penn Ave kitchen for furloughed federal workers! Plus they hold liquid!
