Which Museum Will Occupy DC Protesters Target Next?

By Craig Bannister | October 8, 2011 | 9:35pm EDT

The Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum was abruptly closed today when a mob of approximately 200 protesters armed with prohibited items including large signs and banners tried to push its way past security guards, according to the Washington Post.

The protesters reportedly pushed a guard up against a wall, prompting another guard to intervene with pepper spray. Response by D.C. police and Park Police resulted in one arrest.

One protester interviewed by the Washington Post said the mob included Occupy D.C. protesters, an offshoot the of Occupy Wall Street movement which, reportedly, opposes a myriad of perceived evils, including the U.S. military’s drones (there’s an exhibit of unmanned military aircraft at the museum).

So, what's next, a protest of the Smithsonian's Museum of Natural History because mastodons didn’t recycle?
