There – now we can proceed.

On Valentine’s day when I went to shoot One Billion Rising in Columbus Circle I ran smack dab into a small protest/demonstration against TWC (Time Warner Cable) This is an easy company to protest against, believe me. The Time Warner Center takes up the entire western side of Columbus Circle and so Columbus Circle is a logical place to march around.

This particular group was protesting TWC’s decision to drop The Ovation Channel in favor of more sports programming. Ovation is/was the only station on TWC that devoted all of its original programming to the arts. I have no idea if they knew about One Billion Rising staging a flash mob at Columbus Circle but the Ovation protestors got out of the way during the rising and were media savvy enough to get the camera crews on site to shoot them and interview their leaders afterwards.
