Today in Washington DC, the 99% converged on Capitol Hill and ProgressVA is participating in the effort to tell Congress to stop catering to the 1%. Thousands of unemployeed, underemployed, union members, students, and many other activists from across the country have come here to occupy Congress – and are delivering their message to over 99 Members.
ProgressVA is here today with them at House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s office along with several local unemployeed from Washington DC hoping to deliver our message to the Congressman directly.
We will continue posting updates on our Twitter account @ProgressVA, so please stay tuned.
Below is video from one of 99% who occupied Congressman Cantor’s office with me yesterday:
