“Biden, Biden, we can’t wait! ‘Til we see you at the Hague!”

Thousands of Pro-Palestine activists surrounded the White House on Saturday holding a red banner symbolizing Biden’s “red line” crossed by Israel in its attack on Rafah.

“She said ‘finish them!’” accused a black bloc-clad activist confronting a woman holding Israel flag. There were very few such confrontations and minimal counter-protesters.

“Biden provided the shells, Republicans signed them,” chanted activists holding the banner around the White House. “It is our right to rebel, Biden, go to hell!”

“Biden, Biden, you’re a sell out. Pack your bags and get the hell out!”

“ARMS EMBARGO NOW” was painted onto the intersection of Pennsylvania Avenue and 17th Street outside the White House by pro-Palestine protesters.

Later, police pushed crowds away to power wash the inscription off of the pavement.

Police mace Pro-Palestine protesters outside White House as they attempt arrest

Police attempted to make an arrest Saturday afternoon outside the White House in the middle of the pro-Palestine rally beginning.

A crowd surrounded them chanting “let her go!” and struggled with officers, who deployed mace against protesters and press.

Protesters surrounding and resisting the police cheered as a relatively rare moment occurred: The arrestee (whose hands had been cuffed behind their back) was able to leave, unarrested.

Pro-Palestine activists hold mock genocide trial for Israel and United States outside White House

At the Ellipse just south of the White House on Saturday, activists held a mock trial, accusing Israel and the United States of genocide, assisting genocide, war crimes, and Apartheid.

Speakers offered testimony over three hours stating their case in front of an audience of participants in the day’s demonstration.

Unsurprisingly, the panel of judges found Israel and the United States guilty on all counts.

US Parks Police clear new pro-Palestine encampment outside White House

After thousands spend Saturday holding a protest against President Biden’s support for Israel in spite of his “red line” being crossed on attacking Rafah, some set up a new encampment featuring tents on the Ellipse, just south of the White House.

Police warned that if the tents weren’t taken down, they would send officers in to do so and arrest anyone who stood in their way.

After being warned to disassemble the tents in their new encampment, protesters linked arms and stood in defiance.

“Biden, Biden, you can’t hide! Gaza is a red line!” they chanted.

An Islamic prayer ceremony was held around sunset on the Ellipse.

Through the tree-line, music was audible from what I’m told was a pride event (today was also Capital Pride in Washington DC) at the White House.

Police had told protesters they would be back to clear the tents that constituted a new encampment at the Ellipse once they had the “resources” to do so.

Protesters left the tents behind and marched away together before that could happen, leaving the encampment unguarded.

After nearly all of the protesters had left, Parks Police entered the encampment telling the few who remained “If you do not leave, you will be arrested!”

The dozens of officers disassembled and removed all of the tents in a few minutes.

Nobody remained to face arrest.
