Petition To Stop Capitol Hill Fence Hits 25,000 Signatures.


A petition advocating against the construction of a permanent fence around the U.S. Capitol hit its goal of 25,000 signatures.

Launched one month ago, the “Don’t Build a Permanent Security Fence Around the U​.​S. Capitol” petition was started by the Don’t Fence The Capitol group.

“A permanent fence punishes we, the people, from seeing and accessing the People’s House,” the petition reasons. “Visitors and residents of DC would be punished by a permanent fence, a permanent scar on our beautiful city, and would lose access to this beautiful beacon of democracy,” it adds.

The petition also notes that “security failures of January 6 would not have been prevented with permanent fencing.”
