For seven weeks straight since Inauguration Day, we’ve covered major protests, many of which went down at Civic Center Park or the Capitol. Today marks the first Saturday that there were no high-profile political actions in the city (though there was something last night).
Though this is really just meant to be an observation of the end of a nearly two-month streak, it bears mentioning that a lot of people are asking how long Colorado’s post-election political rage would last. This is particularly true within the defeated, newly-motivated left-leaning camp.
In any case, here’s a recap of the last seven Saturdays. We’ll let you decide if people are running out of steam or else just took the day off to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

Jan. 21: One day after Inauguration Day, the Denver Women’s March started it all.
Jan. 28: President Trump’s first “travel ban” caused hundreds of people to flock to DIA. This action had the least notice of any on this list. It also caused a lawsuit that seeks to change DIA’s “first amendment expression” policies.
Feb. 4: The rally to “protect our Muslim neighbors” met at Civic Center Park.
Feb. 18: Hundreds marched from Civic Center Park to the First Unitarian Society of Denver in support of Jeanette Vizguerra.
March 4: A pro-Trump rally was interrupted by anarchist protesters at the Capitol. Also, immigration activists crowded two bridges over I-25.
