Occupy DC resists eviction from McPherson Square

(note about the video: I could not film the most important parts of at least two of the confrontations because it takes two hands to defend yourself! As a participant in the defense I had a dual role and could not film and fight at the same time)

On the 4th of February, US Park Police did the bidding of GOP
Congressman Darrel Issa (R-CA) acting through a cowed Secretary of the
Interior Ken Salazar. Park Police assaulted Occupy DC's McPherson Square
camp with horses, billy clubs,another Taser incident, and seemingly
miles of waist-high black fencing.

The police attack began at around 6 AM, but there are reports that the mainstream media arrived an hour or two ahead of the police. The Russia Today cameraman who filmed the RT video may have been one of the photographers who was injured today. My own camera barely escaped destruction by grabby, punchy police hands.

It is interesting
