"The signs were a LOT better than last year. This was part of the fun of the event.

The crowd was a great mix of students, office workers, activists of various sorts, union members and even quite a few families. There was an LGBT contingent with colorful signs and flags as well.

Again, the attitude was very upbeat and positive. It was a wonderful way to spend the end of the work day. Better than sitting at my desk, that's for sure ..."

Also, check out these supposed "only hundreds" or protestors:

I can attest to this. I was there. as I have been before. thousands of people. Police couldn't keep us from taking 5th ave as we marched from Library to Union sq. Exhilarating, peacful saw no violence from protestors saw lots of police misconduct/contempt. Lots of harassment of protesters by police who don't understand rights to protest. Old Young, all races, hope it grows and politicians take heed.
