(Natural News) Black Lives Matter demonstrators converged right outside the home of Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Thursday demanding that they be given their $600 in pandemic benefits. This occurred right after Senate Democrats shut down a $500 billion Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) relief package proposed by McConnell and other Senate Republicans.
The demonstration occurred shortly after the Democrats voted down the package in C Street Northeast near Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. Around two dozen Black Lives Matter protesters were wearing red or white shirts bearing BLM-related slogans.
“If we don’t get $600 – no peace!” said the demonstrators. “I said if we don’t get $600 – no peace! No healthcare – no peace!”
The demonstrators shouted other slogans like “No justice – no peace,” “I can’t breathe” and “Black lives matter.” Other videos that covered the protest showed the demonstrators chanting “This isn’t funny – where’s our money.”
At one point during the demonstration, one of the leading organizers, an African American man with a bullhorn, said “I need that money! And until I get that money, I’m going to be right here on C Street every day until I get it!”
The demonstrators also set up a dinner table and left plates with messages outside McConnell’s front door. Some of the messages include “Can’t afford my rent or food. I need that $600 now,” “Extend $600 for unemployed. We need our money,” “Enjoy your dinner, what about ours?” and “Can I come live with you.”
Several patrol cars from the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) were in the area overseeing the demonstration, but no forceful action was taken to stop the protest.

Democrats vote down relief package despite them agreeing with it
The Black Lives Matter demonstrators are blaming McConnell for the failure to pass the latest coronavirus relief package despite the fact that it was the Democrats who voted to block the much-needed financial aid for Americans who are feeling the negative economic effects of the pandemic.
Every Senate Democrat just voted against hundreds of billions of dollars of COVID-19 relief. They blocked money for schools, testing, vaccines, unemployment insurance, and the Paycheck Protection Program.
Their goal is clear: No help for American families before the election.

In an appearance on Fox News, McConnell, with anchor Dana Perino, talked about how the Democrats are failing to provide for the American people.
At the beginning of his interview, McConnell and Perino mentioned how the bill would have given $300 billion in federal aid and how it would have provided people with an extra $300 a week in unemployment insurance benefits until December 27.
He further lamented how the challenges the country is facing should be solved in a bipartisan manner, and that the Democrats are stalling in an effort to score political points. McConnell believes that the Democrats will only pass a coronavirus relief proposal after the election.

“What part of this bill are they opposed to? What we tried to do, Dana, was to craft a package that underscored things we supposedly agree on: Kids in school, replenishing the popular small business loan program, which is out of money, more money for hospitals and covering unemployment insurance for another six months. What’s not to like about that?
The Senate majority leader went on to talk about how the Democrats are unwilling to even pass legislation that they are in favor of so long as it is something proposed by their party. Instead, McConnell argues, the Democrats want to spend trillions more. This, he says, would ruin the American economy, whose national debt is already ballooning.
“We’re not going to squander funds here,” said McConnell. “We want to narrowly target the needs of the American people. That’s what this vote is about.”
