#OccupyDC Comes to Nation’s Capital and Freedom Plaza

JTMP attended the first day of #OccupyDC at Freedom Plaza on Oct 6, 2011 where several bands and musicians took to the stage and used their music to speak about the Occupy movement, Wall Street greed, and their want for the government to spend less on war and more on people; including infrastructure jobs, college loans, and other investments into our future.

We will have videos coming out of the many bands that played on stage, for now here is some banjo activist music from a troubadour we found wandering Freedom Plaza as the march to the US Chamber of Commerce was commencing. Banjer Dan Mazer:


One of the most politically in your face activist bands today, Junkyard Empire rocked the Empire at Freedom Plaza.
