Bowser Imposes Another Curfew Amid Floyd Protests

D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser issued another citywide curfew Wednesday amid the ongoing protests over the death of George Floyd.

The curfew, announced at a news conference, will start Wednesday at 11 p.m. and end at 6 a.m. Thursday.

It marks the fourth straight day the mayor has imposed a curfew, though Monday and Tuesday’s curfew began at 7 p.m. and ended at 6 a.m., after Sunday’s curfew began at 11 p.m.

Bowser said the peaceful demonstrations Tuesday influenced her decision to revert the curfew to the original start time.

The mayor said she didn’t know if or when curfews will be in effect after 6 a.m. Thursday.

Massive groups of protesters have taken to city streets nationwide in the past week over the death of Floyd, a Black man in Minneapolis who died May 25 when a white police officer pinned him to the pavement with a knee on his neck.
