15th and K streets nw – this is the union protest that’s been going on outside this building for weeks on end. it includes bucket drumming. the building was built while i worked here, but remains empty except for the brazilian consulate on the bottom floor – always full of visa seekers. we looked at moving in but the prices were way too much for how much office space is vacant in dc right now. the rumour is, in the economic downturn, they didn’t finish “paying” their workers when the development companies went bust – looks like they’re not eager to recoup either.
