    WASHINGTON — Organizers in solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street movement have plans for rallies for the next two Saturdays in Washington, D.C., with one under consideration for the lobbying hotbed of K Street.

    D.C. organizers in two Occupy Wall Street solidarity groups – Stop the Machine and Occupy D.C. — have plans to hold a rally Saturday starting in McPherson Square in D.C. as part of an effort to hold a global day of occupation in 900 cities around the world, according to Margaret Flowers, one of the organizers of the Stop the Machine group. She declined to comment on where they might be heading from there.

    Focusing on the Washington lobby money men, organizers for the Stop the Machine movement in Washington also are considering a rally the following Saturday on Oct. 22. The goal, one organizer said, is to focus the message on “$$$.” Many of the Washington lobby firms are located on K Street in Washington between Georgetown and downtown D.C.

    Thanks for the head's up.
    I'll be sure to avoid it.
    If I want to be around a bunch of unemployed scumbags in need of a shower and looking for a handout, I'll visit the local soup kitchen.

    Who knew on the verge of an election season, conservatives, already in prime position to take back the government, could get this kind of break? Every day that goes by, another dumbass Democrat jumps on this mob gathering that grows more violent by the day!!!

    Protesters march on Wall Street after park cleanup postponed, get into scuffle with cops - NYPOST.com


    Liberals. Anything they touch gets fcukked up. This is going to be another PR nightmare the GOP is going to be able to hammer them over the head with come next year. Shits gonna get more violent too.........as this shit messes more and more with the restaurant business in Manhattan, the underground power brokers of NYC arent going to be happy. Dollar to a thousand stale donuts they dont let this mob gathering go on to much longer.......and its too bad. A bunch of naive fcukks are going to be responsible for a couple of other naive oddballs getting whacked in what is going to look like a tragedy. When you fcukk with the NYC economy for this long, some powerful people are going to get mighty pissed. And they wont be going down there asking people to leave with a gay mega-phone. Fcukkers are ruthless. The thatched cottage naive arent going to know what hit them..........but you can bet your ass that 90% of them will be heading home.:eusa_dance:

    Check out my post above bro..........shit isnt going to be going on a whole lot longer. Not the NYC one at least. WHen people stay away from the city due to being scared away, if the people responsible are easily identified, there are people who will ensure it goes away. Stay tuned.........you're going to wake up one morning and nobody will be around that park anymore and it will have nothing to do with weather or cops.

    Just curious, but has attendance at the zoo gone down since people can head down to Wall Street and see the animals for free?
