what occupy dc looks like

*all pics belong to politics and fashion.  credit the source.

occupy dc is the local branch of the larger occupy movement that started in new york city with occupy wall street.  protesters in dc have “occupied” mcpherson square where they list high unemployment, reduction of the social safety net, on-going wars and lax banking regulations as their grievances.
while the movement claims to be “leaderless,” i’ve witnessed a pretty well-oiled machine that couldn’t exist without consolidated guidance and direction.  sub-groups and committees have emerged to address concerns and propel the movement through the winter months.
