Anti-Trump protesters targeted the conservative Heritage Foundation on Tuesday in the wake of a looming government shutdown.
As ChristianHeadlines.com previously reported, Democratic and Republican lawmakers need to vote on a new government spending bill by April 29 if the government is going to stay up and running. Any new bill would need 60 votes, which is more than a simple majority in the Senate.
Lawmakers disagree on President Trump’s proposed border wall, funding for Planned Parenthood, and other key issues.
The protesters who stormed the Heritage Foundation accused the organization of being “Trump’s think tank” and of supporting the President’s proposed budget which they said “will hurt our communities, according to the Washington Free Beacon.
Instead, protesters called for “Water not walls!” and a “Budget for the people.”
The “People’s Action” Twitter account tweeted out photos and videos of the protest.
We're shutting it down at @Heritage because it continues to be @realDonaldTrump's think tank. #RiseUp2017 #Budget4ThePeople pic.twitter.com/bnerOnBBa0— People's Action (@PplsAction) April 25, 2017
This sign is best art the @Heritage lobby has ever seen. We say NO to the pro-corporate agenda killing us all! #RiseUp2017 #Budget4ThePeople pic.twitter.com/BxwZPiYRhy— The People's Lobby (@peopleslobbyusa) April 25, 2017
