Occupy Occupy D.C., Day 8 — Eating Their Lunch


In solidarity with the four-year-old North Carolina girl who was forced to eat chicken nuggets instead of her homemade lunch so that her school could remain in compliance with federal nutrition regulations, today’s “Occupy Occupy D.C.” contingent dined on the meal she was denied: turkey-and-cheese sandwiches, chips, bananas and apple juice.


Washington, D.C.’s Freedom Plaza is far from the Ritz (but that is the famous Willard InterContinental in the background, with the high flagpoles).  The other diners at Occupy D.C. encampment aren’t the best company.  Nonetheless, it was a lively lunch.


Today’s event was covered by a cameraman from the Fox Business network, several radio stations (including G. Gordon Liddy and NRA News) and the Weekly Standard — whose coverage was picked up by the Drudge Report.
