Confrontation at the Hart Building
Capitol Police arrested six demonstrators in the Hart Senate Office Building Tuesday in a protest stemming from the ongoing Occupy Wall Street movement.
The six are charged with unlawful conduct-demonstrating in a Capitol building, and are being processed at Capitol Police headquarters, according to department spokeswoman Sgt. Kimberly Schneider.
The groups Occupy D.C. and Stop the Machine had announced plans earlier in the day to try and shut down the Senate Hart building by gathering in the atrium.
Occupy K Street had nothing to do with this and wants to be clear about that.
