Yesterday was Day 5

Inexplicably, even though I took 99 pictures, they appear to have been swallowed up by the one short movie I took. Fortunately I took a few pictures with my phone.

This was taken down at Zucotti Plaza (formerly Liberty Plaza,) right across from Ground Zero; the speaker is named Jitu Weusi. What's neat is the solution to not being allowed to use any sound amplification: people near the speaker simply repeat the speaker's words and the ripple effect carries the message.

According to hackdeeper on YouTube™:

"Unless someone can better explain it, because there is no "leader" of the protest, there's a psuedo-democratic process [and by "psuedo-democratic process", I mean "a process that certainly seems more closely related to a true democratic republic than the USA"] by which "the floor" (or bullhorn) is yielded to an individual who then makes a proposal (by means of said bullhorn), pausing after each short phrase so that the immediate crowd can "chant" back that phrase. Like a crowdsourced P/A (or wi-fi repeater, or whatever), they broadcast each segment to even the remotest fringes of the crowd of 2,000."
