Occupy Times Square yesterday,here are a selection of images, more later once I’ve had some breakfast. There were a lot more people than I expected and I think the police agreed given there rather heavy handed approach. There was a really positive carnival like atmosphere helped by the warm weather and the surreal effect of the neons once it started to get dark.
As the neon says ‘occupy Wall St. goes world wide’, every time that came up on the screen the crowd went wild.
It was interesting to see the reaction of tourists and people who had come to see Broadway shows, I spent along time talking to a couple from Ohio who were in town for the weekend. The guy was really big and seemed to know a lot about Police tactics, I enjoyed his insights into the whole thing. It good to get a different perspective on to these things, sometimes it’s easy to forget that I live in a bubble and how lucky I am to have this life.
More later, I have a lot but I need to eat now !This entry was posted in Diary. Bookmark the permalink. ← Previous Post Next Post →
