Welcome to Bloombergville

15 Dec

Fourth in a series of snaps of random happenings in New York City:-

Right near where I work, in downtown Manhattan, protestors were warming up to the ways of civil disobedience earlier this year, before Occupy Wall Street really took off. They were camping out / sitting out next to the Woolworth Building, promulgating these messages of fairer wealth distribution at a time when Mayor Bloomberg was threatening to cut the city budget meaning public sector jobs / services would be cut.

Enjoyed seeing the creative slogans of the protesters (and reminded me of the heady days when I too was out protesting in the anti-capitalist protests in the City of London many a moon ago):

Let them eat cake:

“Welcome to Bloombergville”:

Tax the rich:
