Foley Square 5:00 pm Nov. 17, 2011


Foley Square 5:00 pm Nov. 17, 2011 Sound is not good, a lot of bouncing off the buildings. People peacefully assembled, got on the mic, listened to arrest updates, and eventually crossed the Brooklyn Bridge. NYPD estimated 32,500 gathered for the demonstration which officially ended at 7pm. Thousands were still making their way toward City Hall and hundreds were arrested.

File under "Fun, Travel, & Adventure"



Watched this on the Netflix DVD last night, it's a great documentary to encourage dissent. Being patriotic doesn't necessarily mean wrapping yourself in the flag or being pro war. There was an entire peace movement consisting largely of Vietnam veterans but corporate mainstream media would have us thinking it was only Jane Fonda. I think it's especially relevant today when combat veterans are returning to civilian life. They should be expected to have a say in democracy and encouraged to organize.
