Hundreds Arrested in 'Democracy Spring' Sit-in
More than 400 people have been arrested in a massive sit-in on the steps of the U.S. Capitol to protest the influence of big money and corporate lobbying in politics. Monday’s protest, organized under the name Democracy Spring, brought together activists from about 140 organizations who marched from Philadelphia to Washington, D.C., last week. Similar acts of civil disobedience are scheduled throughout the week in Washington.
