OCCUPY DC—The City Paper has a video of a guy participating in the Occupy DC movement talking about the food the demonstrators have been eating to keep them going. He takes the filmmaker on a tour of the food tent and shares, to no one's surprise, "We keep it pretty much vegetarian—vegan, if we can." [WCP]
