Report back on Occupy Town Square

Occupy Town Square was a huge hit. The day was filled with skill shares and teach-ins on a variety of topics as wide ranging as “How to protect yourself from a pepper spray attack” to “Protest songs” and “Seed bombs.” Stimulating conversations filled Washington Square Park. The People’s Kitchen treated us to an amazing chili cook off. And the People’s Library was in full effect offering people free access to their collection of books, magazines and zines. The drum circle gave the day a steady and energetic rythm as people danced away. We sang songs. We chanted. We hugged and laughed. It had that same energy as Liberty Square during the occupation minus the tents. There was street theatre and numerous performances on the “People’s Stage.” Here’s a little video I put together of the day’s events.
