‘Occupy DC’ protesters take to Metro as demonstrations continue

Nearly a week into “Occupy DC” demonstrations and a day after protesters took to D.C.’s Freedom Plaza, the movement that Wall Street built is still attracting supporters.

Now, Metro riders may find members of America’s 99 percent clogging their daily commute.

A video posted on OccupyDC’s website shows a cluster of dressed-to-the-nines demonstrators posing as America’s 1 percent, brandishing an iPad, toasting champagne glasses and handing fliers to riders who mostly just look tired.

No word from which percent the iPad came from.

Watch live video and view photos of the ongoing demonstration:
