Marshals drag a protester away from the Maryland Avenue NE home. (Jabin Botsford - FOR THE WASHINGTON POST)
Today, Occupy D.C. activists tried to prevent U.S. marshals from evicting a woman from the foreclosed Capitol Hill home she’d occupied rent-free since 2006. They failed, but they put up quite a fight, as Annie Gowen and Joe Heim report in the Post: “There were two injuries in the melee, including a protester who was knocked unconscious and taken to a hospital. Later, a deputy U.S. marshal was injured while breaking down the door. ... Ultimately, officers dragged the protesters away and a crew began moving furniture out and into the street.” More from DCist, WAMU-FM and WaTimes.
