"Take Back the Capitol"
Dec. 7, 2011--Occupy activists from around the country in Washington staged a march on K Street as part of the "Take Back the Capitol" week of actions (Dec. 5-9).  After the march reached K Street, activists blocked intersections and there were dozens of arrests.  (This was the same day that six of the Republican candidates appeared at the Republican Jewish Coalition forum; Mitt Romney indirectly addressed the Occupy movement in his speech with his remarks on a merit-based versus entitlement based society.  Michele Bachmann in her speech in the afternoon referred to "a vocal minority, called Occupy Wall Street, otherwise known as the Obama re-election team."

Thousands will converge on the nation’s capital to show Congress what democracy looks like, shine a light on corporate greed and the human suffering it has caused, and demand justice for the 99%. For four days we’ll hold spirited but peaceful actions, speak-outs, and protests—from the halls of the Capitol to the offices on K Street—as well as spend time together learning and sharing stories, ideas, and inspiration.

A few highlights:

  • Monday, December 5 – Set up the People’s Camp. After checking in, pitching tents, and creating signs and banners, an orientation and entertainment will be hosted by OurDC, a local organization of unemployed and underemployed 99%-ers.

  • Tuesday, December 6 – Take Back the People’s House. From the People’s Camp, we’ll form groups and fan out to congressional offices, remind members of Congress that the Capitol is the People’s House, and demand that they represent the 99%.

  • Wednesday, December 7- “Make Wall Street Pay.” We’ll swarm K Street, the lobbying center for the world’s most powerful corporations, and track 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.

  • Thursday, December 8 – Demand Justice for the 99%. The day’s events will include multiple speak-outs throughout the Capitol, a national prayer vigil with unemployed folks and faith leaders, a mass march on key congressional leaders, and a lively jubilee action.

  • Friday, December 9 – Take It Home. We’ll pack it up and head home, where we need to keep the pressure on our representatives in Congress to do right by the 99%.
