Metal Fence Around WH To Come Down Tomorrow

The Washington Post reports:

The National Park Service will remove most of the tall metal fencing surrounding Washington’s Lafayette Square by Wednesday, the agency said. Officials erected the fence early last week to bar access to the park near the White House, which sits south of it. The fencing first appeared shortly after police aggressively cleared a crowd of largely peaceful demonstrators from the area of the square using chemical irritants and rubber bullets.

Since then, crowds have continued to gather outside the park daily to protest. When night fell days ago, demonstrators occasionally rattled the fence, shouting at law enforcement officers lined up behind it. More recently, protesters have converted the fencing to a crowdsourced memorial wall, filled with posters, names and paintings of black men and women who died during encounters with police.
