“FOR INFORMATION ONLY”
DC Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency reports that a large demonstration known as the “Million Mask March” is scheduled for Thursday, November 5, 2015 at the Washington Monument and at Lafayette Park near the White House. The demonstration is anticipated to start at 9:00 a.m. and continue into the afternoon and evening rush. In the past, this event has resulted in arrests and entrance closures for the Ronald Reagan Building. This year, the organizers have announced their intent to disrupt the evening rush hour by blocking vehicular traffic in downtown Washington. The event is aimed at the White House, but has spilled over to federal buildings in the surrounding area. Be prepared for a rough commute in the evening rush hour.
I hope to get photos via my commute home.
The fifth of November,
The Gunpowder treason and plot;
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!
Guy Fawkes and his companions
Did the scheme contrive,
To blow the King and Parliament
All up alive.
Threescore barrels, laid below,
To prove old England’s overthrow.
But, by God’s providence, him they catch,
With a dark lantern, lighting a match!
A stick and a stake
For King James’s sake!
If you won’t give me one,
I’ll take two,
The better for me,
And the worse for you.
A rope, a rope, to hang the Pope,
A penn’orth of cheese to choke him,
A pint of beer to wash it down,
And a jolly good fire to burn him.
Holloa, boys! holloa, boys! make the bells ring!
Holloa, boys! holloa boys! God save the King!
Hip, hip, hooor-r-r-ray!
