The 7,837+ planning to bring trash to John Boehner’s house, co-led by GGW contributor Nolan Treadway, are meeting at Capitol South at 9:30 am, barring a late-night budget deal not meeting, since Congress reached a last-minute deal.

Bringing trash is not a requirement. The group plans to respect laws including not littering and remain peaceful. Organizers also stress that this isn’t protesting the federal shutdown, but the way it blocks DC’s local operations.
