The Protests in Washington, DC …

JobsVia Nation of Change:

Roughly 3,000 unemployed workers from around the country are expected in the nation’s capitol next week for four days of protests with labor, religious and social justice groups that say Congress cares more about America’s wealthiest 1 percent than it does the masses of struggling middle-class families.

Piggybacking on the Occupy Wall Street movement, the three-day “Take Back the Capitol” protest will open Monday with construction of a “Peoples Camp” on the National Mall as a base of operations. On Tuesday, protesters will hit Capitol Hill to lobby members of Congress about extending federal unemployment benefits. The group walks to K Street on Wednesday to protest the political influence of corporate lobbyists.

And on Thursday, they’ll host a national prayer vigil for the unemployed on Capitol Hill. At the same time, the AFL-CIO will coordinate simultaneous protests at congressional district offices across the country to call for extending unemployment benefits that are slated to expire Dec. 31 without congressional action.

    What this movement needs in VIOLENCE!!  Dictatorships around the world are being overthrown, but all we can do is gather in a park and cry about the parity of wealth and power in our country.  I propose a new Communist Party.  I propose stockpiling weapons and ammunition and bringing a dose of reality to the evil men and women who control our fates.  #ProjektMayhem
