This march attempted to storm the Chamber of Commerce, Bloomfield Properties, and PEPCO, but wasn’t able to get beyond a literal foot in the door at Bloomfield Properties, the folks who evicted Occupy Wall Street. The US Chamber of Commerce had their doors open but cops inside, and PEPCO being right across from Bloomfield and a notorious target was reinforced beforee Occupy even crossed the street.

Occupy called out PEPCO for all three of their offenses: That fat rate hike, their refusal to negotiate in good faith with the electrical workers, and their continued purchase of electricity from generators still using coal from mountaintop removal mines.
