    SEIU, pro-Democratic Party groups stage protests in DC

    The Occupy protesters were joined by hundreds of people who converged on DC this week under the banner “Take Back the Capitol,” an initiative of pro-Democratic Party group MoveOn.org and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU).

    The “Take Back the Capitol” campaign has involved several small direct action protests, including delivering messages to congressional offices to demand that congressmen “represent the 99 percent” and other sit-ins in public spaces. On Thursday, the campaign came to a conclusion with what its web site called a “national prayer vigil with unemployed folks and faith leaders.”

    The intervention of the trade unions and various pseudo-left organizations associated with the Democrats poses a direct threat to the Occupy movement. Both MoveOn.Org and the SEIU hope to divert the mass hostility to the capitalist system and its two big business parties, which has found initial expression in the Occupy protests, and channel it into support for the Democratic Party, ultimately in an effort to re-elect Barack Obama in 2012.
