The Battle of the Barn

A different version of events. Too bad this wasn’t admitted into evidence during the trial of OccuBarn defendants. I think Judge Wingo would have enjoyed it.

Occupy DC: The day after the raid

McPherson Park was muddy on Sunday and reeked of manure left by horses of the mounted Park Police from the previous day’s raid. Two mounted police remained and kept a relaxed vigil near the stacks of steel barricades, while Park Service workers scraped mud off of the sidewalks.

The park was significantly cleared out but several individual tents still stood, mainly on the west side of the park. People clustered around the library, untouched after being vigorously defended the day before.

A well-attended General Assembly gathered on the south lawn at 4pm.
