More on the above ...

Police forcibly remove activists living in the Venezuelan Embassy in Washington
https://www.washingtonpost.com/local...127_story.html

Quote:
A State Department spokesperson said federal agents removed four individuals, “including members of a group called Code Pink, individuals calling themselves the Embassy Protection Collective, and members of a group called the Popular Resistance.” They were arrested for interfering with the State Department’s protective functions, officials said.

...

For weeks, Guaidó supporters have congregated outside the embassy to demand that demonstrators living inside vacate the building. None of the occupiers were Venezuelan, according to organizers — a fact that riled members of the Venezuelan community in Washington.

“This is first and foremost a strong rejection of Nicolás Maduro, and to see a group of Americans, an NGO, support him so strongly just got a visceral reaction from us,” said pro-Guaidó demonstrator Dilianna Bustillos. “We wanted to get out here and say what they were saying out the embassy window, our embassy’s window, did not represent the wishes of the Venezuelan people.”

The ongoing and at times explosive confrontation between activists became a proxy struggle for control over the South American country’s diplomatic mission.

...

Since April*30, anti-Maduro protesters have converged on the building en masse to protest Code Pink’s presence inside.

They set up camp with tents, canopies and food stations so that they, too, could be at the embassy round-the clock. Members of the group patrolled the building’s entrances and exits, at times physically blocking Code Pink supporters’ efforts to enter the building or deliver supplies like food and water to demonstrators inside.

...

Last week, protest organizers said Pepco shut off electricity to the building at the direction of Guaidó-appointed diplomats recognized by the U.S. government as the rightful emissaries of Venezuela. On Monday, officials posted a notice demanding that the occupiers vacate the embassy.
Lol, the Code Pink embassy occupiers were quoting the Vienna Convention to police that were evicting them ...

The only "vienna convention" I recognize involves chili dogs and a beah.

(disclosure - had my first public beer at 120 East Maple Ave.)

Yum, that sounds good.

Speaking of those that get easily triggered and hot dogs, Bob from Gunrunners mentioned that there's a guy who has a makeshift hotdog stand in Baker Park area and gives out free hotdogs in proximity of vegan activists when they come to protest the use of horse drawn carriages in November and December (calling it "animal slavery") ...

Apparently the stand is quite popular.
