Occupy D.C. on Tuesday will spend its first day of action in more than a month with a scheduled rally on Capitol Hill, an event organizers have promised will draw thousands of supporters and could determine the movement's ongoing viability.
A massive protest Wednesday along the K Street lobbying corridor in Washington resulted in 62 arrests, closing busy downtown streets and marking the second such mass arrest in the city in four days.
"I don't think anybody is planning to provoke an eviction," Mr. Brune said. "Everyone will be encouraged to be peaceful. Maybe I'm being optimistic."
Though the focus of the rally is for members to have their concerns heard in the halls of Congress, Mr. Brune said a demonstration that leads to arrests is a risk, considering that D.C. Mayor Vincent C. Gray and others want their three-month stay in McPherson Square to end.
