Protest

leave a comment »

Did the big protest today in New York, which was much better managed than the anti-war march back at the beginning of the year. Didn’t see a single equesto-cop. Was never penned in, which is a huge improvement, especially when you have to take a leak.
I was just about there for the only silly pseudo-violent incident that went on:
Fire
We’d just turned the corner from 7th ave to 34th street. Sirens, kids running, a big old puff of smoke. And that was all. They chased down a single kid and arrested him…
Most interesting t-shirt on the other side: small group of right-wingers between 32nd – 34th street, pro-lifers of course, but then a weird crew of pro-war folk (and I mean pro-war), a couple sporting the following slogan across their chests:
INTOLERANCE IS BEAUTIFUL
Ugh.
Watching the reports on tv this afternoon and tonight, got what I should have expected. Near silence. 200 K – 400 K show up for something, and it gets third or fourth billing. But what do I expect?
I guess somebody will have to do something violent to break into the stream of propaganda we’re being fed on the tube. If I were a betting man, I’d bet something will indeed happen… Just a guess…
