WASHINGTON (Reuters) - More than 400 protesters were arrested on Monday for unlawfully demonstrating at the U.S. Capitol, U.S. Capitol Police said.

The demonstration was held "to demand Congress take immediate action to end the corruption of big money in our politics and ensure free and fair elections," Democracy Spring, the group that organized the protest, said on its website.
