Just got back from Freedom Plaza D.C. very exciting day, I had been there since 10 am.
Place was packed, very peaceful, had a march to white house and another location, older crowd than Wall Street protest, much more anti war, many vets against the war were there, hopefully I will have link to my pics up later.

Glad you made it back alive. Isn't DC the most dangerous place in America due to high crime rates (not counting the politicians)?

Like any city or town there are safe parts and then there are parts you really do not want to be in.

DC is the correct place to protest, and more specifically, the White House. No more Wall Street bankster lapdogs for president. Obama has by far been the worst of the worst in that regard.

You're kidding, right? At least I hope you are.

Doesn't seem like a "violent anarchist uprising" to me
