Occupy Education Rally, UCSC Quarry Plaza, 11/9/11

speakers are saying good things but are preaching to a very devout choir. it is operating as a “protest” as defined in the dictionary.

someone handed me a well-printed sign for something about banks. another person gave me a sticker that said 99% in spanish. burner bro hula hooping. 3 cops monitoring the whole thing. i would guess at least 250 people there as a low estimate.

i hung around for about 45 minutes waiting to hear a MIC CHECK?!?! WHAT SHOULD WE DO NOW? but when they started the dance performance on stage i realized =(

 it is likely that this group will be satisfied by marching downtown, hearing speakers, chanting, and maybe starting a dance party somewhere along the way.
