Storming The Bastille by Cory V. Clark

Protesters chanted various anti-Capitalist, anti-two part system, anti- police, pro community, pro worker slogans gaining them the respect, admiration and even the applause of many commuters.

There were no arrests on the march, nor any injuries. Police were relatively peaceful despite some overly zealous officers who manhandled protesters getting them out of buildings.


Abolish it all by Cory V. Clark

One woman went on the march despite having recently broken her hip, slowing the march down toward the end, after leaving the last building they had entered.

At the end of the march protesters took the intersection at 13 th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue holding for nearly twenty minutes, ending the first march of the day with the Electric Slide, a dance for Anarchy, and several speeches by various groups within the Occupy community including representatives from Occupy Wall Street, and the Anarchist Alliance.


Electric Slide for that Anarchy by Cory V. Clark

Police brought out an L.R.A.D. in order to make their dispersal Announcements. Protesters pushed it up until the third dispersal order was given before dispersing to Freedom Plaza for a bit of a cereal breakfast and a teach in Anarchism and Direct Action.

Several other marches are planned for the day including a demonstration at the United States Supreme court where they are hearing arguments on whether or not corporations should be allowed to get away with human rights violations, including murder and torture and a second tour of K Street.

"We want total freedom and we won't rest until we have it, Government never benefits the people, it only helps the few, any token aid, is merely to keep the masses docile when they should be enraged," said Nancy of the Anarchist Alliance.  

In addition the final march of the day will be an Anti-All Party System March that is scheduled to begin at 7:30 P.M. stepping off from Freedom Plaza.
