A large group of protesters lay down on Washington DC Street to repeat words George Floyd said as he was pinned down by police officers, minutes before he die. The group laid down on Pennsylvania Avenue in the nation's capital and repeated words I can't breathe ` before continuing with their March through DC. Floyd died on May 25 after a Minneapolis Police officer pinned Floyd's neck down with his knee for nearly nine minutes as he was handcuffed and saying he couldn't breathe. He was unresponsive by the time medical personnel arrived at the scene. Police say they were responding to a report of forgery in progress. It moves me, you know what I saying? Everybody in sync, northern Virginia resident EB Mackee says about everyone chanting Floyd's words. Mackee add: It is statement to lie down and say, I ca breathe! It gives you a visual of what it is like for somebody to be there for nine minutes saying they ca breathe. So were just making statements. Wednesday's demonstration was part of New day of protests in DC that started near the White House, scene of six days of demonstrations. Things got started with law enforcement officers cutting off main protest area, near Lafayette Park and White House. Move by police sends protesters along other paths in the city, which include walking towards Capitol Hill. Limiting protest zones does not sit well with demonstrators who say that authorities-particularly President Donald Trump-simply want to shut them down. It's like they want to remove us permanently-they want us to go, said Selah Squalls, 19, of Alexandria, Va., Student at Jackson State University in Mississippi. It's crazy, it's abusive, it represents injustice to me-it represents unfairness, she say. Wednesday is the sixth consecutive day of protests in DC as part of nationwide demonstrations that have gript attention of the country. Tuesday's protest in the city ended peacefully after a tumultuous Monday that saw officers clear peaceful group from the White House with projectiles. Squalls, who said she has been at site throughout the week, said protesters were very near the White House on Friday. Get push back into Lafayette Park the next day. Then got pushed beyond Park earlier this week. Now, she note, they have been moved north to 16 Street beyond. John's Church. I'm sure tomorrow we'll be pushed back even more, said Squalls, who attended the demonstration with her mother: Lawanda Squalls, 48, Alexandria, Va., Washington, DC employee. Neither mother nor daughter blames law enforcement for new restrictions-they blame someone else. It's not what they want to do-it's what Trump wants to do, says Lawanda Squalls. He wanted this. Antonio Jenkins, 26, caregiver who lives in Washington, DC, said he was attending his first demonstration and was disappointed he couldn't get close to the White House. He said he understands the need for security, but it feels like the government just wants to shut down protests.
