By Mike Riggs, Reason

Having been driven out of McPherson Square in Washington, D.C., Occupiers are now planning to set up camp at the Marriot Wardman Park Hotel, where they will harass the “bigots, media mouthpieces, corrupt politicians, and their 1 percent elite puppet masters” slated to attend this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference, or CPAC.

Occupiers will join up with the “AFL-CIO, SEIU, National Nurses United, Metro Labor Council, [and] OurDC” at Malcolm X Park (located at Euclid and 16th Streets NW). From there they will march to the Marriott in Woodley Park (that’s a 1.2 mile hike.)

Once at the hotel, the Occupiers and their Big Labor compadres will “have actions” and “make our voices heard.”
