Chanting “Let us sleep so we can dream,” Occupy DC erected a tent over the statue of General McPherson. It was an act of defiance against the National Park Service, who posted yet a third notice yesterday warning that it would enforce rules against camping and sleeping in the park.
Occupier Caty McClure blamed Rep. Darrell Issa, who convened a hearing of the House Oversight Committee last week to put pressure on the Park Service. “Once again,” she said, “we have the federal government trampling over DC.”
