Marching With Pete Seeger Last Night

BrooklynParrots.com is a non-political blog, but Steve Baldwin, its founder, has lent his support to the Occupy Wall Street movement. Steve had the great honor on Friday night of marching with Pete Seeger and thousands of citizens from outside Symphony Space, on 95th Street, to Columbus Circle. Here's a clip that shows Steve, with Paul Stein, performing "Occupy Wall Street," written by Paul, who Steve met last week at OWS. By the way, Steve wants to give a shout-out to the NYPD, who kept things friendly and orderly as this spontaneous, mobile demonstration made its way down Broadway. They deserve our thanks for making sure we all were able to exercise our First Amendment rights and arrived safe and sound.
