NYC RNC Protest Photos

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past six months you know that the Republican National Convention begins Monday at Madison Square Garden in New York City. For the past several months an organization known as United for Peace and Justice has been preparing for a massive rally in opposition to the pResident and his policies. This rally seems to have gone off smoothly drawing an estimated 250,000 – 400,000 protestors. James over at Angry Finger joined the march and has some excellent pictures of the protests. Thanks to Kevin at Catch for pointing this out.

UPDATE: The New York Times is reporting that unofficially the NYPD has estimated the protest crowd at a half-million!

The protest organizer, United for Peace and Justice, estimated the crowd at 500,000, rivaling a 1982 antinuclear rally in Central Park, and double the number it had predicted. It was, at best, a rough estimate. The Police Department, as is customary, offered no official estimate, but one officer in touch with the police command center at Madison Square Garden agreed that the crowd appeared to be close to a half-million.

I just turned on FOX News and they are reporting that the march consisted of three anarchists and a dog… ok, they didn’t say that.
