Protests are underway in Washington on Thursday for the seventh consecutive day. Here are some significant developments:

• Thunderstorms hit Washington Thursday evening, sending many protesters looking for shelter. But as the night wore on, other demonstrators were undeterred and began marching from Lafayette Square to the Lincoln Memorial. Late Thursday, two National Guardsmen were taken to a hospital after a lightning strike near Lafayette.

• The American Civil Liberties Union and Black Lives Matter filed a lawsuit accusing President Trump and his administration of authorizing an “unprovoked and frankly criminal attack” on demonstrators to enable a photo op of the president holding a Bible in front of the St. John’s Episcopal Church.

• Overall, the day’s protests have been peaceful, and the mood festive, around parts of downtown Washington. D.C. Mayor Muriel E. Bowser (D) lifted the curfew after a sixth night of demonstrations ended with zero arrests and no police injuries or damage to police property.

• While eulogizing George Floyd on Thursday, the Rev. Al Sharpton announced plans for an Aug. 28 demonstration in the nation’s capital on the 57th anniversary of the March on Washington.
