Despite the dismal weather, McPherson Square’s Occupy DC contingent gathered in the protest’s “library” tent on Saturday afternoon to carve pumpkins. About 15 people got crafty with the gourds; some stuck to traditional Halloween fare, but others embraced social-justice motifs. Occupiers noted that the pumpkins, donated from a local farm, are intended to light McPherson Square up a bit—and post-carving, the seeds were roasted for a snack.
