On June 1st, 2013 a few hundred people attended a rally & march for Bradley Manning at Ft Meade. The weather was sweltering and many people had to walk a long distance to reach the rally after the roads were closed off by the police.
Worldwide protests took place against Monsanto on Saturday May 23rd. In NYC, the rally started in Union Square, followed by a march to Washington Square. In Washington Square, there were teach-ins, drum circles and food was provided by the Occupy Kitchen and Bread Not Bombs.
The march & rally was in response to the murder of Mark Carson in the West Village in Mid May 2013. The march was extremely well attended. It was led by multiple New York City politicians and tightly regulated by the organizers.
