THE CAPITOL IS ALIVE! CROWD GROWING
11:30 AM EST
Andrea Shea King reports from the Capitol steps:
Crowd is huge. Her est is 3000 and growing by the minute. Crowd is spilling over from the steps to the grass area. Police seem to be just doing crowd control, securing building entrances. The usual. Report: 8 protesters arrested at Joe Lieberman's office. However, these protesters were urging Joe to vote FOR universal health care.
Lots of flags and signage. People are streaming in on foot from all directions...buses everywhere--Andrea is counting 18 from where she's standing.
News outlets are clearly present.
Andrea says organizers are starting with some music: "We won't be fooled again." I guess that would be the perfect song for this event.
We Won't Be Fooled Again
We'll be fighting in the streets with our children at our feet and the morals That they worship will be gone and the men who spurred us on sit in judgement Of all wrong they decide and the shotgun sings the song I'll tip my hat to the New constitution take a bow for the new revolution smile and grin at the change...
