Hundreds of 'Black Lives Matter' activists took to the streets of Washington D.C on Wednesday to protest against a newly proposed crime bill which has been unveiled by DC Mayor Muriel Bowser. Protesters marched from the Congress Heights Metro Station to the 7th District police Headquarter, chanting “black lives matter" and holding banners saying 'stop racist police terror'. Bowser’s new crime bill will increase the number of police officers across Southeast D.C, which is home to a high proportion of African-Americans. Activists feel the new proposal is an act that will criminalize the community. An increase in unlawful arrests and the killing of African Americans in recent years has sparked movements such as ‘Black Lives Matter’. The movement campaigns against police brutality in the United States against African-Americans.
