Thousands of Washington DC-Based Protesters to Occupy Congress, Courts, and Corporations Starting Today Jan 17th!

""The Washington, DC-based occupations at Freedom Plaza and McPherson Square will host a massive rally today to “Occupy Congress.”

Organizers said they expect thousands of protesters to descend on the Capitol for Jan. 17—or #J17, the four-month anniversary of Occupy Wall Street. Members of Occupy Baltimore also plan to march the roughly 41 miles to Washington, DC for the event.

Though organizers acknowledge a “broad diversity of views about the usefulness and ethics of engaging directly with members of Congress” in the Occupy movement, Tuesday morning is set aside for participants to meet with their representatives. Attendees are encouraged to set up official meetings as constituents.

While the Occupy movement remains determinedly decentralized, these protests could signify a willingness to engage in more specific political actions. Similarly, Occupy Wall Street recently passed a resolution declaring that “Corporations are not people, and money is not speech.”""
