Occupy DC

I was in College Park, Maryland to liveblog a journalism conference this weekend and couldn’t resist trekking to nearby Washington to check out #occupyDC. Demonstrators have occupied two parks close to the White House, where food stations, first aid tents and heated debates fill dual tent cities. Handmade signs demanded an end to the US-led wars and country-wide access to health care. The folks in both camps were a mix of students and homeless Washingtonians. One particularly jovial duo even served me up a grilled cheese sandwich from a hotplate atop a shopping cart. Here are photos from both camps:
