Occupy DC protests in front of US Chamber of Commerce GOP Christmas Party

On the 15th of December, Occupy DC marched on a Christmas party for the GOP held by the notorious US Chamber of Commerce.

Video of the “caroling” featuring attendees running a double-line gauntlet of Occupy protesters

The plan was to “carol” the party with Occupy-themes Christmas Carols, but as lines of suit-and-tie GOP big shots passed between lines of protesters, booing and chants of “Shame” quickly took over.

The protest must have struck a nerve, because police ran their sirens at their most obnoxious setting all the way back to McPherson Square afterwards!

  1. Hey now, DCDAN! Just thought you might like to check out another video POV; here’s a link to my newsreel on last night’s festivities, via Vimeo:

    …because the YouTube Music Police stripped out the sound to this one, apparently due to my use of the Portsmouth Sinfonia’s rendition of Tchaikovsky’s Dance Of The Sugar Plum Fairies. Assholes. I’m in the process of re-posting most of my content to Vimeo, check it out at http://www.vimeo.com/flugennock .
