Update, 12:05 p.m.
With a steady rain falling, marchers from the Occupy Movement passed along U.S. Route 1 between University Park and Riverdale Park shortly after 11 a.m. Tuesday.
Marching south from College Park — where they ate breakfast — the group of roughly 20 protestors passed by University Park Town Hall and continued into Hyattsville. An escort of three police cars followed slowly alongside.
At one point a passing motorist slowed down his vehicle and yelled at the marchers, "We are the 100%, not the 99%!"
Update 11:17 a.m. Tuesday
They will have an emergency general assembly at that point to decide how to approach McPherson Square, said Bo Han, who is in charge of the Occupy Movement routes.
The Occupy Movement enjoyed a breakfast of hummus and and red pepper pitas, coffee, and hot chocolate at the Food Co-op on the University of Maryland campus Tuesday morning. They held a quick instructional general assembly on the ground level of the Stamp Student Union and talked about the march, the media attention they have received and explained their goals to a passerby. A crowd of around 30 formed for the GA.
Update 9:12 a.m. Tuesday
At 9:05 a.m., the marchers were on Campus Drive, near UMUC, on their way to the University of Maryland for breakfast at the Food Co-op in the Stamp Student Union at the Food Co-op, according to Mueck.
Original, Monday night
A group of Occupy Movement ralliers might be moving through the area on U.S. Route 1 Monday night, Lt. Robert Mueck of the University of Maryland Police said.
"They are just entering [Prince George's] County on Route 1 in Laurel now," Mueck said in an e-mail at 8:17 p.m. "They were supposed to stay in Laurel overnight, but apparently are making an attempt to make it to College Park."
He said there are about 30 to 35 people peacefully marching, causing no traffic issues, and police are providing them an escort.
Students at the Food Co-op on the University of Maryland campus have prepared food and intend to meet up with them, Mueck said.
"Their goal is to get to D.C. to join the movement there," Mueck said.
