Activists Stand Firm at Venezuelan Embassy | The Georgetowner

The buzz in Georgetown isn’t only local. Sometimes, it’s international.

Along with protests that closed down Sheridan Circle next to the Turkish Ambassador’s Residence and the Romanian Embassy, there were escalating demonstrations at the shuttered Venezuelan Embassy, adjacent to the historic C&O Canal on 30th Street this week.

A planned press conference this morning, Thursday, April 25, brought out several Secret Service vehicles to keep an eye on the lively but peaceful event.

“What we are doing is unprecedented in the history of the United States,” CODEPINK activists told The Georgetowner in front of the four-story brick embassy. Women-led grassroots organization CODEPINK is known for imaginative and highly visible liberal social-justice interventions in Congress and around the District.
