This morning I began reading the news and some of my favorite political sites. The Urban Politico contributor, William Sullivan Jr, referenced a thoughtful article by Naomi Wolf about the rights of peaceful civil disobedience and Mayor Bloomberg's erroneous methods of dealing with OWS.
I then found a related link to 92 year old Pete Seeger joining the OWS movement. Huff-Post threw up a video from an OWS protestor at the end of an article by Christian Salazar which led with the following:
NEW YORK -- Folk music legend Pete Seeger and `60s folk singer Arlo Guthrie joined Occupy Wall Street demonstrators Friday in their campaign against corporate greed while residents near the protest park encampment pushed to regain some peace and quiet in their neighborhood.
Seeger joined in the Occupy Wall Street protest Friday night, replacing his banjo with two canes as he marched with throngs of people in New York City's tony Upper West Side past banks and shiny department stores.
The 92-year-old Seeger, accompanied by musician-grandson Tao Rodriguez Seeger, composer David Amram, and bluesman Guy Davis, shouted out the verses of protest anthems as the crowd of about 1,000 people sang and chanted.
They marched peacefully over more than 30 blocks from Symphony Space, where the Seegers and other musicians performed, to Columbus Circle. Police watched from the sidelines. Huff Post 10/22/11
Looks pretty peaceful to me.
