There was a protest in Lower Manhattan this afternoon, against Wall Street and capitalism in general. As Wall Street falls in my beat for my journalism program (more on that later, promise) I biked down with my camera and notepad.
The organizers were expecting 20,000 but hoping for 90,000. The police expected 5,000. From what I saw the police were much closer in their guess. The protest is suppose to be in the Arab Spring tradition, with an extended occupation and protest. I’m going back Monday morning to see if that actually transpires.
This is a quick and dirty edit for expedients sake.
