On the evening of November 16, anti-TPP protesters assembled at the US Chamber of Commerce for a “torchlight” themed parade. The “torches” were toilet roll shades lit from the inside by LED lights. This march stormed the building housing investment banker Morgan Stanley’s offices. Next marchers blocked access to Monsanto after a failed attempt to get inside. Finally the march went to the Ronald Reagan building and largely took over the plaza in front of it on the 14th st side.
As the march wound it’s way around I st, K st, 14th st, and other busy streets, horns blared as expensive luxury cars were once again snared in traffic backups. At the offices of the United States Trade Representative and Monsanto, more of the TPP toliet paper as used against USTR earlier the same day was festooned on trees and the buildings.
