OccupyWashington gets violent at AFP Summit

In the fall the war was always there, but we did not go to it any more. - Ernest Hemingway, "In Another Country"

Occupy DC protesters tried to force entry into the Washington Convention Center on Friday, where Americans for Prosperity was hosting its “Defending the American Dream Summit.” The protesters also formed roadblocks, surrounding the convention center and only allowing non-luxury cars to pass.

AFP officials reportedly said that the D.C. 911 operators hung up on them 4 times running when they tried to complain about the disturbance at their rally in the convention center.
