Protests for July 6


The demonstration downtown in front of the Justice Center and federal courthouse remained largely uneventful throughout the night. Protesters had snacks from the snack van, ate barbecue, and individuals on bullhorns made speeches. There was no documented law enforcement presence until around 1:30 AM. At this time only one journalist from the night was still there, and has video of law enforcement in the U.S. Marshals’ camouflage uniform giving verbal commands to protesters to back off federal property, including the sidewalk around the courthouse.

Early in the night, a Homeland Security car was spotted near the federal courthouse downtown.

Most protesters remained around the Salmon and 3rd street area, which was also where the snack van and barbecue station were.

Around 11:40 PM, protestors moved towards the Justice Center.

The night had been quiet until around 1:30 AM, when federal agents emerged and began moving protestors away from the federal courthouse.
