Occupy protest outside US Capitol
17 January 2012, 18:26
Washington - Protesters with the Occupy Wall Street movement will meet outside the Capitol in Washington for what participants hope will be the largest gathering of Occupy activists from around the US.
Participants say they plan to protest the influence of corporate money in politics. The House of Representatives reconvenes on Tuesday after its winter recess.
The nation's capital has emerged as one of the strongest bastions of the Occupy movement, in part because the National Park Service has allowed protesters to keep their encampments in two public squares near the White House.
Participants say the daylong demonstration will be peaceful, although it's possible some will risk arrest.
