New Haven, Connecticut

The thing I noticed most at Occupy New Haven yesterday was the diversity of the crowd. I don't know how to do crowd estimates but I could tell it was way into the hundreds and I've seen estimates online putting the number at a thousand. The organizers and leaders seem mostly to be young, twenties and thirties, but anywhere you looked you always saw young, old, middle aged, white, black, brown—everything. Well, the 99% must be diverse, by definition.

I'm very happy to see demonstrations again. We've gone way too far in the direction of having things done TO us rather than on our behalf. Headed too much toward oligarchy. Thanks for covering NH.
