WASHINGTON — Protesters marched on the Walter E. Washington Convention Center on Friday evening where Americans for Prosperity, a conservative organization funded in part by the Koch brothers, was assembled for its Defending The American Dream Summit and Ronald Reagan tribute dinner.

During the dinner, Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain said “I am proud to know the Koch brothers,” according to The New York Times.

Across the street from the convention center, counterprotesters had organized Occupy The Koch Brothers, featuring a Guerilla Drive-In event featuring videos “fun videos that expose the Koch Brothers in colossal fashion,” according to the event’s website.
