Occupy DC, May Day Protesters Shut Down City Streets in Solidarity
- jmsaba, CNN iReport producer
In solidarity with May Day protests around the world, Occupy DC organized a rally and march that originated at Meridian Hill Park and ended at the White House. During the rally, teachings on May Day history; protest procedures; and general political issues were held along with games and speakers.
Protesters proceeded to walk through the streets of DC screaming anti-capitalist slogans and “justice for the people” chants. Onlookers from above peaked out windows to snap some photos, while other workers high above the march raised fists in solidarity.
