Well, I have just got back from today's rally here in Minneapolis and again the turnout was good and the police and protesters got along splendidly. My fiance and I spent most of the day there arriving just after 5:00 and the general assembly was just getting started. The turnout was good and I'd estimate probably 500-600 people were there at any given time. The weather was decent with a bit of spotty rain showers and cloudy skies, however, the wind was still an issue and made my sign almost fold in two.
More below the fold
The protesters were ready to go today and we saw citizens from just about every walk of life. Early on we had been approached by a homeless man who showed up out of curiosity, he apparently had heard "a commotion" and decided to find out what going on. He thought it was great to see all of these people out standing up to the injustices we are all going through. The sad thing was upon reflection is that some of us are pretty darn close to being placed into his situation, no home, no job, no healthcare and really nothing to do except survive. He was pretty upbeat for being homeless and I hope that he is able to get some help soon, it's almost winter and here in Minnesota it can get damn cold.
Well anyway, here are the photo's from today. I am super exhausted so I won't be adding captions and I will try to check in and answer questions throughout the evening, that is if I don't fall asleep at the keyboard.
