Occupy America! Thousands of Americans have stormed the World War II memorial today, as well as other barricaded monuments in DC.
More here. The first link above says that there was some “pushing and shoving” between protesters and the police at one location. This is not confirmed however. This story says the protesting vets were carrying the barricades to the White House.
Update: It appears the veterans are bringing barricades from all over and are using them to “barricade the White House.”
