Protest in D.C. today

If you're in Washington, D.C., today, check out this protest against the insurance industry. Activists plan to "arrest" health insurance execs who are there for a meeting, and hold a rally afterward.

The idea behind the event, according to Gerald McEntee, president of the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), is "to expose the high crimes and misdemeanors perpetuated by the insurance industry time after time and year after year, and we are totally sick of it. We're going to crash their party and put an end to its injustice."

I'm with you in spirit!

I wonder when more of these protests are going to take place in DC. Is there any way I can find out in advance? I live in the area and would like to go down to protest sometime. Insurance companies can be so annoying sometimes! My insurance isn't doing a good job of covering my treatment!
