Several hundred people converged in City Hall Park this afternoon to protest the “generational theft act” aka “Porkulus”.

I arrived late after taking part in the Hanoi Jane protest earlier.  I didn’t have my camera today, but Tom had his and sent me the link to is photos and video.

A great set of Photos here.

The crowd was still milling around talking and getting used to the idea that many of them had actually taken part in a protest for their first time.  They were excited and animated.  I hope that they will keep up the pressure.  Congratulations to the organizers for throwing this together on such short notice.

Several NY Bloggers have reports and photos and since they were there for most of the protest I will let them tell about it in their own words:
