800 march through Charlotte, decrying financial system
The Charlotte Observer
Posted: Sunday, Sep. 02, 2012
The marchers representing the unemployed, undocumented immigrants, gay rights activists and many others stretched the length of a city block. About 800 people joined the march, police estimated.
Some protesters lamented the lower-than-expected turnout.
Why arent there more young people? asked Richard Conely.
The 61-year-old Atlanta resident, who was in town to show solidarity and take photographs, contrasted the gathering with protests he remembered from the 60s.
Among the signs waved by demonstrators: Tax the Banksters. End plutocracy, Bust up the Banks and I came for the police brutality.

Young people wished up.
Can’t wait until the dried up hippies that are in their 60s now croak. They’re sickening.
Freeloaders need to get paid to freeload for the cameras.
800? More like 80. I was at a Tea Party event that had at least 10,000, and the media said there was 1000. The media sucks.
We’ll be watching “yall” at Bank of America stadium during the Barry Worship Service next week! Don’t forget, it’s Rimshot Joe Biden bobblehead night!
Way to stay on message ... if your message is "We're a bunch of losers and nuts."
Why arent there more young people?”
They were riding on Shaka Zulu’s prosperity train..... but it derailed.
“Why arent there more young people? asked Richard Conely.”
Take that up with your abortophile friends, Mr. Conely.
The Charlotte Observer shows exactly one picture of the protesters, and, if there're 80 in that picture, it's just barely.
If there were actually 800 marching, why can't the Charlotte Observer show a picture of them from "AirStar 36" ?
I lived in NC for a couple of years, back in the late '70s. They weren't stupid down there back then. What happened?
where is code pink????
“The protesters come from a coalition of more than 90 local and national groups, from Students for a Democratic Society to Veterans for Peace.”
Hmmmm. 800 protesters divided by 90 groups would be about 9 protesters per group average.
” The Freek Show” before the FREAK SHOW.
Good Lord, I’d hit it.
Then I’d hit it again to make sure I didn’t miss...
IOW, Obama Democrats. Representing? What they were elected by somebody?
