RNC Protests

Apparently more than 800 protestors were arrested in New York yesterday while protesting the Repugnican National Convention. That’s more protestors than actually attended the Democratic Convention. The United For Peace march on Sunday estimates were somewhere in the neighborhood of 500,000 protestors.
Check out these great photos on a yahoo slide show of the “Pink Slip Protest” emphasizing that Bush’s economic policies have resulted in the first net job loss during a Presidency since the Great Depression. Thousands of demonstrators formed a symbolic unemployment line nearly three miles long which stretched from Wall Street to the MSG barricades. Their pink signs read “This next pink slip could be yours.”
