Protestors knock down White House security’s barricade


Protests broke out near the White House Saturday, with demonstrators pushing down multiple security barricades and some clashing with police, according to multiple reports.

WTOP reporter Alejandro Alvarez shared video from the scene Saturday, showing protesters pushing against a crowd of police officers.

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) shared video of the protest earlier Saturday, in which protesters can be heard chanting, “Hands up, don’t shoot!”

Protests have erupted nationwide over the death of George Floyd, a black man who died earlier this week in police custody after bystander video showed an officer kneeling on his neck.
