This coming Saturday(June 7th ) is going to be the most popular Saturday for the year 2020. 100,000 plus people are willing to meet up in the National Mall this Saturday to raise their voices against the assassination of George Floyd as well as against the police savagery in general. Also, rallying protesters in front of the White House since last week symbolizes the strength of the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

US president, Donald Trump commanded the US troops to be suited up in alerted mode around the White House on Saturday because Washington D.C. is getting ready for the largest George Floyd objection yet.

All the responsible parties are gathering numerous people to support the largest protest as the country moves on to the 12th day of witness against the racism and police brutality in the United States.

White House is also changing its look to face bravely with the upcoming situation and it does look like a big fortress. Large black fences between 8 and 9 feet tall are erected already to prevent protesters entering through it and it will remain there for 2 to 3 more weeks.
