Two opposing activist groups are slated to protest on Saturday, July 6, in Washington, D.C., in neighboring areas. A far-right wing group protesting censorship by tech companies will gather at Freedom Plaza starting at 12:00 (local time), while a left wing anti-fascist group will gather for a counter demonstration at Pershing Park from 10:00.
Associated transportation disruptions and a heightened security presence are to be expected near all protests. Clashes between demonstrators and security forces cannot be ruled out. If tensions escalate, further related protests are possible in the coming days.
Individuals in Washington, D.C. are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all public demonstrations as a precaution, anticipate localized disruption and a heightened security presence in the event of any demonstrations, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
