[casi] New York City Protest

[ Presenting plain-text part of multi-format email ]

I was out there, and I don't even think it was 4 degrees, it has to be less -
and yet the streets were filled with people undeterred by the cold. - Noa

"Kucinich was one of the speakers in New York City yesterday, which saw its
largest protest since the historic June 12, 1982 antinuclear rally in
Central Park. And if the day had been as warm as that June day was, who
knows how many more people would've swelled the ranks of the estimated
300,000 who came out, braving windchill temperatures of four degrees.

The huge NYC crowd, prohibited by court order from marching, did just that
within sight of the United Nations amid heavy security. "The World Says No
to War," proclaimed a huge banner draped over a stage on First Avenue near
51st Street, in the midst of a vast crowd that packed First Avenue from
49th to 72nd Streets, and spilled over into side streets and avenues,
where thousands more were cordoned off behind police barricades in
frequent chaotic scenes.
