Sparse ‘Day of Rage’ (Only 300 show)
NEW YORK POST ^ | September 18, 2011 | MAURA O’CONNOR

Posted on 09/19/2011 8:32:22 AM PDT by markomalley

Only about 300 protesters, mostly college kids and aging hippies, showed up near the Stock Exchange for yesterday’s anti-Wall Street rally -- far fewer than the 20,000 that organizers of the so-called global “Day of Rage” had predicted.

I thought they were bringing tents, setting up a field kitchen and intending to occupy that area for up to one month. Not happening?

They won’t leave until their demands are met.
They admit they don’t know what their demands are (still polling for that), but by gum they’re not leaving until then.

300! That’s pretty sad in a city the size of NYC. You could probably get that many people for a flat earth demonstration or an elect Wendell Wilkie rally.

Not quite on-topic, but I am a developer, so I have all the settings set up for the highest level of sensitivity to bugs.

The New York Post website is a MESS.

I can't even really get to it, with all the bugs they have in there.

Some had cute little “revolutionary’ outfits on though.

Guardian UK, reporting is exaggerated and pushing an agenda :

On Saturday 17 September, many of us watched in awe as 5,000 Americans descended on to the financial district of lower Manhattan, waved signs, unfurled banners, beat drums, chanted slogans and proceeded to walk towards the "financial Gomorrah" of the nation. They vowed to "occupy Wall Street" and to "bring justice to the bankers",

The call to occupy Wall Street resonates around the world - We need deeper changes to our financial system, or tent cities of people angry at corporate greed will keep appearing

From Pajamas Media:
>>The Los Angeles Day of Rage crew made the peculiar decision to hold their event in the city’s Olvera Street, the touristy Mexican-themed pedestrian marketplace near the site of the original Spanish settlement. Despite all the promotional hoopla, a completely humiliating 20 people showed up. But none of the organizers bothered to find out in advance that September 17 was Fiestas Patrias on Olvera Street, “the largest Mexican Independence Day celebration in the State of California at the birthplace of Los Angeles; Placita Olvera. 200,000 attendees expected.” Oooooooooops!

>>As a result, the tiny protest was completely overwhelmed by the non-political festival-goers. And, irony of ironies, the fiesta was packed with corporate sponsors, who set up glitzy and well-attended promotional tents all along Olvera Street. So much for the anti-corporate message!

"Only about 300 protesters . . . showed up near the Stock Exchange for yesterday’s anti-Wall Street rally"

On an NFL Sunday?! A day when school's out?!

Call the rally for a workday. Be sure it's on a schoolday.

You will attract thousands.

Kind of what I expected. Our underclass is too effing lazy to put on a good riot. Even so the MSM had tripled reports of the attendance to around a thousand.
