At about 1:30PM on the 1st of October, a second Occupy march issued forth, this time from Freedom Plaza.
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.
