USA: DC man shelters dozens of protesters as police dispersed crowds after curfew

United States, Washington DC
June 3, 2020 at 04:24 GMT -00:00 · Published

Rahul Dubey, a local of Washington DC, has earned the admiration of protesters in the US capital and beyond, after it emerged that he had sheltered up to 70 protesters in his home on Monday night.

Dubey can be seen appearing at his door on Tuesday, where a crowd, largely made up of members of the media, had been formed. People can be heard cheering his as he emerged.

According to reports, many protesters in DC continued to stay on the streets after the 7pm curfew, and were being dispersed by riot police with rubber bullets and tear gas. Protesters were corralled into different streets, in some cases with police reportedly blocking off both ends, preventing any escape.

Dubey then opened his door to protesters in need, reportedly even getting pepper sprayed himself. Those that stayed with him began treating their wounds and washing out their eyes from tear gas, before sharing pizzas together while a heavy police presence remained outside, reports say.
