Photographs: Occupy Wall Street & Times Square October 15th


2011.10.15 – The day Occupy Wall Street goes worldwide!

Alright people!  We just got back from New York City….  Here are a few shots from yesterday at the park and Times Square, with my cousin, Ben, Elise, Tom, and Mike.

Some highlights from the day:  great art, music, no violence, seeing RFK Jr., Times Square occupied, grammatically correct signage, hearing and watching the movement go worldwide.

Let’s get some more momentum going this week!  Check out a meeting this week to get an idea of what you can bring to the conversation.  FES’ers can definitely add a lot to this, since the issues on the table are pretty much everything we’re working on here.  There are a ton of independent media and interviewers scooping up information, and it’s important to have people present who can intelligently represent the issues.  And let’s get some more pictures!
