Occupy Wall Street
whose legs you can see in the center of the photo above. I really hate crowds
Occupy Wall Street
unlike the women above, who, like so many others, were documenting things like mad.
Occupy Wall Street
Note the policewoman on the left.  The crowd seems to be a whole cross section of society, including students, out-of-workers, out-of-towners, the politically savvy, the politically naive, people who like street theater, people who feel terribly sad about the direction our society is going, union members and the odd person on the way to  his or her lunch. 
Occupy Wall Street
The police were ready with netting and plastic handcuffs, but not water cannon or dogs. I'm always frightened demonstrations will turn violent --but think of all the good that has come out of them --the end of the war in Vietnam, getting rid of apartheid, Civil rights here. 
Occupy Wall Street
Wall Street is merely a symbol of something -- of corporate bailouts and CEO's whose yearly salary would last most of us more than a lifetime. Time to dress up in the flag
Occupy Wall Street
or put on a mask.
Occupy Wall Street
Most of the people look very ordinary.
Occupy Wall Street
Some quite extraordinary
Occupy Wall Street
Just people who want to be heard.
