On the 28th of June, Occupy DC and Occupy Caravan activists marched on
the headquarters of the US Postal Service, where Postmaster General and
CEO Patrick Donahoe is pushing reducing mail deliveries from 6 days to 5
along with the usual cutbacks and union busting bullshit. It’s bad
enough that several postal workers were on a 4 day hunger strike in
front of the USPS headquarters. As Occupy arrived, the union had a
spirited rally already going to support the hunger strikers.
At the climax of the rally, union members and occupiers advanced on the
building with the stated intention of arresting postmaster general
Donahoe for stealing from postal workers. One person was detained and
later released, unfortunately not Donahoe.
