During a protest march to Black Lives Matter Plaza in Washington, D.C., BLM members shout “Burn it down.” Members wore all black and carried umbrellas for protection from police crowd dispersal munitions.
“Burn it down,” BLM members shouted as they marched through the streets of DC. The group headed to Black Lives Matter Plaza near the White House late Saturday night, journalist Henry Rodgers tweeted.

The standard refrain of “What do we want? Justice” was followed with calls to “Burn it down!”
“If we don’t get it — Burn it down,” they chanted.
Another journalist, Madison Muller, tweeted a video of BLM protesters chanting, “All cops are bastards” as they approached Black Lives Matter Plaza.
