Five Arrested as Occupy DC Conducts Pajama March on Banks
- jmsaba, CNN iReport producer
On the morning of April 13, protesters held a “pajama march” to spread their message. They departed the corner to make their way through city streets to freedom plaza. From there, they marched to a Wells Fargo, then to a different branch of Bank of America, on to the White House, and then returned to their “home base” branch of Bank of America.
Five protesters retook their positions by the entrance, holding signs, and disregarding arrest warnings by police. Finally, all five were arrested for blocking pedestrian traffic on a sidewalk, a planned civil disobedience to further their cause.
