We happened to be in NYC on May 1. Patsy was working, I was sick, but I walked down to Bryant Park to investigate the occupation. I marched with them for about an hour until my voice started giving out (I was recovering from strep/flu/something) and the cops started descending in overwhelming numbers. (Ridiculously so imho for a peaceful protest.) I found it energizing, but the police presence and attitude was very demoralizing.
