Capital Fences Go Up as Truckers Plan DC Protests

USCP says it is ‘aware’ that the ‘Freedom Convoy’ of truckers is heading for Washington, D.C.

From The Hill

“The U.S. Capitol Police and the D.C. Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency asked for D.C. National Guard personnel “to provide support at traffic control points in and around the District to help … address potential challenges stemming from possible disruptions at key traffic arteries,” Pentagon press secretary John Kirby said in a statement Tuesday. 

Kirby said the Defense Department is “analyzing” the requests but “no decisions have been made yet” on whether to approve them.  

Military Times was the first to report on the requests, with National Guard troops notified of a potential activation between Feb. 22 and March 7 or later, according to internal directives obtained by the outlet. “

The fencing is set to be installed next week, ahead of Biden’s March 1 speech — and amid fears of a paralyzing rally forming similar to the anti-vaccine-mandate demonstrations in the north, Fox News reported Sunday.
