'Stop The Machine,' Occupy DC Gather In Freedom Plaza, March On Chamber Of Commerce (PHOTOS)

WASHINGTON -- More than 500 people gathered in Freedom Plaza on Thursday, participating in the "Stop the Machine" protest, a separate but parallel action to the ongoing Occupy DC protests in McPherson Square and the Occupy Wall Street protests in New York.

Some protesters marched on the U.S. Chamber of Commerce near the White House and led chants asking "Where are the jobs!" before returning to Freedom Plaza.

Here's a photo slideshow below of Thursday's demonstrations.
