"Take Back the Capitol" to Shut Down K Street Today

Wednesday, December 7, 2011

(Metropolitan Washington Council, AFL-CIO)The 4-day “Take Back the Capitol” occupation continues today as thousands swarm K Street, the lobbying center for the world's most powerful corporations, tracking down those responsible for crashing the economy and causing millions of 99%-ers to lose their jobs and homes, while failing to pay their fair share of taxes. Details on the "Make Wall Street Pay" were still sketchy at presstime but there will be a number of actions this morning directed at K Street lobbying firms and then at noon a shutdown of K Street is planned, with protestors gathering at Farragut Square and Franklin Square between 11:30 and 12 noon. Occupy DC is joining in as well, with an action against a lobbying firm in the morning, a K Street block party in the middle of the day, and a march to the White House and Supreme Court in the evening.
