One Response to We are the 99%

  1. I know this is a little on the late side, but I was downtown in Nashville at Legislative plaza during the weekend of fall break for the Southern Festival of Books and I got some video footage of the protest march… I thought I should share it. There were mothers with children that were sitting on the steps leading to 6th St that had been sitting there for HOURS! There were hundreds of cardboard signs and tents and sleeping bags and people gathering in groups around a guitar player and singing along to symbolize the unity in their cause. The Saturday afternoon march could be heard all over Nashville lead by a “robot” decorated with “We are the 99% and so are YOU!”
