For your lunchtime viewing entertainment, a motley bunch of anti-war/Stop the Machine/Code Pinko/Medea Benjamin/99 percenters are screaming things in the Hart Senate Office Building and hoping to get arrested. The police and media outnumber the “99 percent.”

Watch live:

Details:

Anti-war protesters plan to storm the inside and outside of the Hart Senate Office Building at 11:30 a.m. today, with the intent of causing enough havoc to shut business down.

David Swanson, one of the original organizers of the October 2011/Stop the Machine protests — which is distinct from the Occupy D.C. protests in McPherson Square — explained the plan to an assembled crowd of less than 100, mainly elderly and middle-aged protesters in Freedom Square Tuesday morning.

The plan is to send protesters into the Hart building in small insurgent groups, which will begin causing chaos at 11:30 a.m.

“If you go inside, there are people who are wanting to go into the elevators and fill them and not get out and push all the buttons. If you like that, do it,” he said.

The activists also plan to block access to bathrooms.

“There are people who would like to sit down and block the hallways that connect that building to the adjacent building: Do that. There is a big atrium in which banners can be dropped from various levels and people can line up. People can gather at the floor level or around at various levels up above, and we are going to have chants and songs. And by all means, think of chants and songs.”

Update: 11:53am…A hippie raises his fist and proclaims victory after their “action” disrupts offices: “We win.”

Lots of protesters wandering around with video cameras interviewing each other.

“15 minutes of live chanting on the floor.”

“A powerful action.”

Woo. Hoo.

***

Update: 6 arrested. It’s how they measure “success.”
