DC protesters shut down K Street
Advertisements [?]
Source: Press TV

Under the banner Take Back the Capitol, anti-corporatism protests have shut down K Street in Washington, known as the home for lobbying in the United States.

About a thousand protesters gathered on the street, shutting down the major downtown intersection to traffic as well as several blocks in either direction, The Politico network reported.

The police made several arrests, repelling the demonstrators. They, however, stormed back into the street after some time.

Some activists chanted hell no, we won't go as the security forces moved in and prepared to make more arrests. Many others of the protesters brought newsstand boxes and other objects to barricade the street.
Some 3,000 activists, who came from Chicago, Boston, Saint Louis, Florida, Kansas, Wisconsin, and elsewhere, flooded Washington this week to join the movement.
