Hands down, the best and most potent sign seen at Occupy Wall Street’s Joint March and Demo
May Day. I spent most of today with Occupy Wall Street and their allies in labor and various Immigration groups. I believe that their death has been over reported. I have already heard Fox News saying that there were 1000 or less participants, (which was patently absurd,) OWS and its allies will probably claim 10- 15,000 or more. I don’t do crowd estimates but I would align myself with 7,500-10,000.
I started the day in Union Square with labor and Immigration, then went up to Madison Square Park for OWS Free University, then followed the OWS march from Bryant Park through Madison Square and down to Union Square to join up with the other groups. There were also marches over the Brooklyn Bridge and a few others. By the time I had to leave the march from Union Square down to Wall Street had not begun but was getting organized. Haven’t seen that many cops in a good long while. Below is a small sample of my pictures from the day. I will have the rest up on Flickr soon.
