WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Demonstrators
from the Occupy movement rallied outside
the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday to protest
against the influence of money on Congress.
In a sign of renewed vigor for the Occupy
movement, which staged protests in many
U.S. cities last fall, several hundred
protesters gathered on the Capitol's West
Front Lawn to greet members of Congress
returning from a holiday break with a day of
rallies and protests they said would include
attempts to occupy offices of Congress members.

Occupy protesters from around the country
who gathered on the rain-soaked lawn
carried signs saying, "Face it liberals, the
Dems sold us out," "Congress for sale" and
"Congress is not for sale."
"It's important to let people know we're not
going to take it anymore. People are really
mad about the way things are going and we
want Congress to understand that," said
protester James Cullen, a 30-year-old
unemployed social worker from Greenbelt,
Maryland.
