A City Under Occupation

The Intercept

Twenty-five thousand National Guardsmen arrive in D.C. for Joe Biden's inauguration, more than three times the number present at President Trump's inauguration. “Washington, D.C., looks like a city under occupation, a city that’s on the defensive, waiting for a potential attack. There is no visible enemy. It’s an enemy being ascertained through online chatter, through rumors. In reality, there’s no opposition in the streets, no militias, no Trump supporters. So it’s a bit surreal, all this defense against something that doesn’t physically exist at the moment.” —Photographer Ron Haviv
