National Day of Anger - #MillionsMarchNYC
Despite the biting wind chill on December 13, some 40-50,000 strong turned out to voice their protest in NYC for the National Day of Anger. Protests continued through the night in Brooklyn, Harlem and mid-town Manhattan snarling traffic and keeping the police busy.
As for the police, I've never seen so many smiling, polite and helpful police as those at this afternoon's march, clearly under 'smiling orders' from on high.
