Arms locked, Ethan and Krystal kiss before what they thought was immediate arrest while "protecting" the occupants of the tent behind them Oct, 5, 2011 in Westlake Park. Seattle Police only arrested the occupants of the green tent and moved these protesters out of the way to do so.

A four-day protest in Washington to reclaim American politics for the people went into overtime, its participants vowing to stay put despite the expiry of their permit. The Stop the Machine occupation of Freedom Plaza is one of two ongoing protests in the capital, alongside the like-minded but more youthful Occupy DC sit-in, now in its 10th day. Occupy DC, inspired by the much bigger Occupy Wall Street movement in New York, meanwhile, continued to draw several dozen people every day to McPherson Square, in the shadows of big lobbying firms.
