On Saturday, protestors and Trump supporters will take to the streets of Washington, D.C. in support of the insurrectionist who stormed into Congress on January 6 and were jailed.  Reinforced fencing has again been placed around the Capitol in preparation for the event dubbed “Justice for J6”.

On Saturday, September 18, only members of Congress and congressional staff will be admitted.

The Department of Defense is offering support from the National Guard.  The Capitol Police will work in conjunction with the military if necessary.  There will be extensive road closures.
