There were also large 99% protests in London and in New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. This movement is not going away, and it appears to be gathering strength with the return of good weather.
No mention of any of this on the front page of the New York Times, of course. We're back to playing the news blackout game in the US, but comprehensive news and photos are always available at the Guardian (UK) site where I got these pictures.
And there's a nice little irony here too, in that Arbuckle was not a 99 percenter, but a conservative journalism student who thought the police were being abused by protesters, and wanted to document it. Details here.
