Protest against foreclosures
I did a lot of wandering about on Christmas Eve. I ended up in the East Village, near Union Square, and saw a protest going on.
It was being held near a Washington Mutual branch and they were protesting foreclosures.
They had a couple of camera crews and the occasional passing-by viewer/photographer like Famous Ankles.
I’ve no idea of the affiliation of the protesters or of the film crews, but I can say that aside from the organized protestors and the film crews, the spontaneous joiners numbered about zero. I presume they were trying to identify WaMu with Mr. Potter in “It’s a Wonderful Life” or perhaps with Scrooge.
