As you know, Comcast is one of my very favorite examples of corporate personhood!
About 25 members of the Occupy Philadelphia protest staged a sit in at the Comcast Building this afternoon.
Police have arrested seven men and two women.
Some of the protesters reportedly got into the lobby of the tower at 17th Street and JFK Boulevard.
About 20 others linked arms on the sidewalk outside, chanting slogans and singing a song about solidarity to the tune of La Marseillaise.
One slogan was “Hey, hey, ho, ho, corporate personhood has to go.”
Occupy Philadelphia said in a tweet the protest was in solidarity with a 99-minute general strike called in support of the Occupy Oakland protest, where police have clashed with demonstrators.
