|This is much more fun than working!|
The 2013 protest season kicked off today with a beat along Ave. Septima.
Students, handicapped people and users of the state health system all marched thru downtown today in what looks like the beginning a another protest season. Today was a bit different, tho, thanks to this group which performed a costumed dance routine on Jimenez Ave. Their costumes reminded me of the Village People, altho they didn't sing.
Employees of the National University have been on strike for more than a week demanding raises. Students are supporting them, shutting down the university. In the past, these strikes lasted months.
|We are not the Village People.|
|Handicapped marchers demand more government services.|
|Riot police at the ready.|
