As Mitt Romney was saying "we own this county," Our DC was either
marching to or blocking the intersections of 14th st and U st NW. This
was where a street party erupted in 2008 on election night when the
results were in-and something else might have happened if the GOP had
stolen the election again.
This time around, Our DC, some of the same folks who have organized
marches against Wal-Mart coming to DC this year, organized a march of
hundreds, maybe more, from Malcolm X Park to 14th and U. Folks from Occupy DC also showed up.
Speeches condemning Romney's economics and warning that the current
minimum wage of $7.25 an hour is nowhere near enough to live on quickly
gave way to a street blockade.
The blockade sealed all four sides of the intersection for maybe half an
hour as police looked on, this was withdrawn, the point made.
