BLM stays, but Mayor Bowser removed the “Cuba Libre” mural in front of the Cuban Embassy.
D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser decided to make the massive “Black Lives Matter” street mural permanent. Violent crime is completely out of control, but this was a priority.
It’s safe to assume D.C. will never have a Republican mayor so the mural will likely stay forever.
Bradford Betz reported at FOX News:
Washington, DC Black Lives Matter plaza to be permanent, mayor says
Construction in Washington, D.C. commenced Monday to make Black Lives Matter Plaza a permanent installation in the nation’s capital.
D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser and the District Department of Transportation announced the plans Friday, reminding the public to expect lane closures.
Sixteenth Street NW between H and K Streets will be closed to through traffic while sidewalks will remain open to pedestrians and local access to businesses will be maintained, DDOT said.
DDOT said the lane closure is necessary to install roadway pavers, bollards and the permanent Black Lives Matter mural.
Traffic controls will be in place to guide motorists and pedestrians safely around the work zone, DDOT said.
Construction to make #BlackLivesMatter Plaza a permanent installation will begin on Monday and is expected to conclude by October 1.

Last year, the street was officially renamed for BLM.

As this happened, Cuban-Americans in DC have been protesting in support of the people of Cuba, who are standing up to their Communist overlords. They painted ‘Cuba Libre’ in front of the Cuban embassy.
DC Mayor Bowser had that street mural removed.

Washington DC removes ‘Cuba Libre’ street painting from in front of Cuban embassy
Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser’s administration has removed a slogan painted in front of the Cuban embassy supporting the Cuban protesters who have taken to the streets to oppose the country’s communist regime.
The message showed up on Friday and contained the phrase “Cuba Libre,” which translates to “Free Cuba” and has often been used, especially on social media, to support the Cuban people who are currently clashing with Cuba’s government.
By the time the weekend had concluded, the mural was gone.

Meanwhile, Black Lives Matter Plaza in the heart of D.C. remains untouched. D.C. Mayor Bowser did not respond to requests for comment.
It's so obvious what's going on here…https://t.co/MD0NmD6Qez

Murals that praise Marxists are celebrated. Murals that condemn Marxists are erased.
What can we infer from this?
