The group chanting and invited passersby to be a part of the movement. One person from the Occupy DC group went inside the Wells Fargo office on 1447 P Street NW and spoke to the manager in charge. DC Police were guarding the bank while the group was outside. The demonstration lasted some 45 minutes.
Borderstan has a reader poll asking, “Will You Join the Occupy DC Protests?” The poll is still open–be sure to vote. At this point, the results show about an even split among readers.
“Occupy DC” is a local version of the Occupy Wall Street protests in New York. DC protesters have been in two places — McPherson Square (just south of our neighborhood) and Freedom Plaza. The general goals of the rolling protests are changes to the U.S. financial and economic system.
