The previous protests were held on 29 August, 2020 in Houston, Texas and on 1 September, 2020 in front of Turkmenistan’s Embassy in Washington, D.C.

As a day earlier in D.C. the participants talked about the problems residents of Turkmenistan are experiencing and requested that the Turkmen authorities respect human rights, provide jobs and food supplies and abandon the plans to amend the Constitution. The protest lasted a bit over an hour.
