Members of various working groups of Occupy Wall Street gathered together to bring a simple message to the holiday shoppers and tourists around town. We met with some disapproval and reprisals by law enforcement - but were encouraged by the cheers and support of the public. At our final stop in Grand Central Station where we were interrupted by the police at the end of our second action there - a number of of the public engaged the police demanding to know why we were being prohibited from doing something so brief and in no way disruptive. Tey were told no signs were permitted in the terminal. Ironically we were also told that no advertising was permitted in Times Square. Rather than fight the fight making the obvious points about freedom of expression - we simply thanked all officers and moved to our next location. Needless to say - they will see us again - and most likely they will again be too late.
Thanks to Erik Mc Gregor for his excellent camerawork and editing - and to our Occupy the Message team.
Music by Battles - the song is Snare Hangar. Used with gratitude.
