Occupy DC storms building holding DC offices of NYSE
On the 4th of May, Occupy DC stormed the lobby Market Place, 801 Penn Ave, a building housing the DC offices of the NYSE.
The video froze up as the person running the Livestream entered the building. The good folks at WSQT Radio recovered the soundtrack from the corrupted video and added a musical intro and outro.
Some of the Occupiers were barechested as they entered the building. A Mic Check announced that the action was in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street, which faced yet another round of police aggression on May 1.
This is the same building that USED to contain the offices of HLS customer Sanofi-Aventis. Security guards responded quickly but not quickly enough to keep them from getting yet another lobby invasion, this time targetting the DC offices of the NYSE.
This was a quick action with only minutes of advance notice. Cops were late to arrive, with Occupy DC safely exiting the building as the first two cops showed up but did not engage.
Just because the IMF meetings have come and gone does NOT mean Occupy DC is done putting the “Occupy” in Occupy DC by storming the castles of corporate power!
