Sarah has updates of the Occupy port demonstrations/shut downs here.
We decided to check out the Occupy San Diego
protests outdoor hipster convention at the 10th Avenue Marine Terminal this cold and drizzly morning.
Around about 30-40 Occupiers at 10 A.M.. There were probably as many if not more SDPD.
A lot of general milling around and some sloganeering but the main effort appeared to be crossing and re-crossing the street...
... because they sure as heck weren't stemming the flow of commerce.
We went on whim so we were unware until we got there that we were wearing what could possibly be construed as provocative clothing.
We got some perplexed looks and actually two compliments from the Occupiers. Gotta believe they thought the shirt was ironic rather than knowing we were playing it straight as unabashed capitalists.
And speaking of ironic...
All in all, pretty uneventful.
P.S. Didn't see any union types. Mainly 20-somethings split pretty evenly gender-wise, and, yeah, very white.
