3 more arrested mimicking Monday's protest, including D.C. Shadow Senator

Another protest was held in the same spot as Monday's, protesting the lack of local control over D.C. funds, as the new federal budget outlaws using D.C. taxpayer funds to fund abortion.
They sat down in the street in the same spot where Mayor Gray was arrested on Monday.  

Mayor Gray addressed the crowd, but only three people were arrested this time.  One of the arrested was D.C.'s Shadow Senator, Michael D. Brown, elected by the people to lobby for D.C. voting rights.

See a photo of the protest from a twitter user here, and a photo of the mayor speaking at the protest here.
