Protest sign at DNC Convention (image by Rob Kall) LicenseDMCA
After walking back to the Oregon ave. subway stop I got on the subway, only to find that they'd re-opened the AT&T stop. I could have waited and taken the easy, dry way. But I would have missed the singing, the posters.
Wednesday, I again took the train into Philly, heading to the Occupy DNC protest, across from City Hall.
When I arrived socialist Seattle Councilmember Kshama Sawant was speaking. She's amazing. I was able to speak briefly using the same mike she's using, to give my take on value of Bernie's platform, which I wrote about here: The Dem Platform Fulfills Bernie's Bottom Up Vision of Change. It was nice to meet some OpEdNews readers there.

There were a lot of protesters filling the square, a lot more than I ever saw before, even during Occupy.
