Occupy DC protest group Clash With Guards At The Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum


Protesters clashed with security staff when they tried to enter a museum in Washington on Saturday, prompting one guard to use pepper spray and leading to at least one arrest, a spokeswoman said.

The incident occurred at The Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum around 3:15 pm (1915 GMT), after hundreds of activists had marched from Freedom Plaza, near the White House, along the National Mall towards the US Capitol.

Some of those in the demonstration were affiliated with the Occupy DC protest group that sprung up earlier this week as a spin-off of the larger Occupy Wall Street movement in New York, angered at “corporate greed.”

Smithsonian spokeswoman Linda St. Thomas said a group of the protesters were confronted when they tried to push through the doors and enter the Air and Space Museum.

“When they were told they couldn’t bring the banners they were carrying inside one security officer used pepper spray,” she said.

“There were a couple of hundred protesters in the area at the time and Washington police were called. There was one arrest that I know of,” she added, noting that the museum closed its doors two hours early because of the clash.

Occupy DC, a young group of several dozen protesters, is camping out at McPherson Square on Washington’s K Street, where many political lobbyists have their offices.

I don't think that Obama's recent drop in the polls accompanied by talk about a GOP landslide in 2012 preceding a "coincidental" "grassroots" Occupy ______" demonstrations is at all accidental.

I am convinced this is pure Alinsky community organization tactics on Obama/Soros/Ayers' part.

I believe the left sees a huge loss in 2012 so they are shifting gears and looking towards something like suspending the 2012 elections. Watch... you will soon see talk about disrupting voting in the primaries.

I believe the civil war is beginning. The Left and the Right are about to go to war for control of the nation.

Young know it alls practicing victimhood. Same as the protesters of the 60's/70's, but only a fraction of the numbers. I wonder if Hanoi Jane will be there with her veggie powered bus. If she had a AAA membership she could have her bus towed to one of the rallies.

Yeah, saw the anti-war protesters in D.C. last Friday. A few thoughts:
- What were they doing protesting drone strikes in front of World Bank and IMF. THe White House is just down the street Morons! Isn't it Obama who orders the drone strikes?
- Saw some Ron Paul banners among the unwashed.
- There must have been at least 50 people. Really impressive. Not!
- Of course, they had to block the traffic! I mean: damn the people who WORK for a living, right?
- Now with all the drone deads, I guess my sticker "I rather be waterboarding" has become kind of leftist, no?
