That curfew in Washington DC I’ve been mentioning is now in effect. About an hour ago police used tear gas to clear protestors from a park across the road from the White House.
Cops are using flash bang grenades to push activists away from burning AFL-CIO building. At least two cars are also burning on 1st near White House.
Reporters still on the scene say the police are continuing to advance on group:
