signs of the times

i went to the occupy vegas march yesterday. it was well attended, orderly, peaceful, contained, and not much noticed in the national press. at least, not that i could find. in a town full of transients, i see it as a minor miracle that people showed up.

we marched up and down the fremont street experience, a closed area full of casinos, shops, and general vegas oddness. the crowd was paced by two mounted (yes, on horses) metro police officers.

the crowd was highly diverse, in age, political leaning, and opinion.
here's some of what i saw.

folks in wheelchairs


 kids, of all ages

 folks my age

activists in training

there will be more photos when i can stand to sit in front of the computer for a while again.
