National Park News

On the afternoon of Friday, November 30th, Park Police officers handled a large demonstration in Lafayette Park. During the event, a number of the demonstrators crossed over to the White House sidewalk and began conducting non-violent civil disobedience. After being given several warnings to desist, their permit was revoked. Officers then arrested 40 demonstrators who failed to obey a lawful order to leave. The demonstration later ended without incident.
