‘Occupy the Highway’ Marches to Reach DC

About two dozen Occupy Wall Street participants are expected to arrive in the nation’s capital after a two-week, 240-mile march from New York.

The protest is known as “Occupy the Highway,” and it picked up a few additional participants as the marchers made their way through New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland.

The marchers are hoping to arrive at the Occupy D.C. encampment in McPherson Square sometime Tuesday. Their arrival in Washington was planned to coincide with an announcement by the congressional deficit-reduction supercommittee on possible cuts and tax increases.

Organizer Kelley Brannon says the failure of the supercommittee to reach a deal only strengthens the protesters’ message that Congress is not addressing the concerns of middle- and lower-income Americans.
