Just a quick diary breaking.  There was a sit-in today in Times Sq in NYC, the so called crossroads of the world.  Thousands of activists are STILL the streets, despite the efforts of NYPD to break up the march.

UPDATE--The NYTime currently has a slideshow up of Trayvon protests from across the nation on the front page of their website. The first image of that slideshow is SO stereotypical I want to throw something.  Compare that picture to the ones posted below.  I was in the street all day and everyone I saw was peaceful and respectful.  How fair and balanced of them!

2nd UPDATE--The pic I was complaining about has now been pushed down by more recent images from Times Sq. It's now pic #4 on the NYTimes slideshow, not the first image you see when you go to their site, so there's that.

The best live link is here:

THe march started in Union Square

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
