I do have a couple of short clips from the Freddie Gray sympathetic demonstrations Wednesday April 29, 2015 in Washington DC, starting at Verizon Center and moving to the White House, then all the way up to U Street.

There is earlier footage in Washington DC from November 2014 regarding the Ferguson and Michael Brown protests here.
