Occupy DC demonstrates on K Street

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON -

Protesters affiliated with last year's Occupy demonstrations in Washington are planning a series of events to mark the one-year anniversary of the protests. 

Occupy D.C. participants say they plan to "shut down K Street" Monday morning, and they say traffic disruptions are possible.

The event marks the one-year anniversary of the beginning of the encampment in McPherson Square, just blocks from the White House. Occupy D.C. was an offshoot of the Occupy Wall Street demonstration in New York. The protesters lived there in tents for about four months before U.S. Park Police raided the square to enforce a ban on camping.

Protesters say they are focusing on K Street because it's home to many top lobbyists. The demonstrations are intended to target corporate money in politics, among other issues.
