In the video you will see that they did put together a protest against the Bank of America. I thought it was lack luster and not very well attended. One of the chants they used was "Banks Got Bailed Out! We Got Sold Out!". This chant made me want to ask one of them; 'If you are angry about the bailouts, then why did you not go to the Tea Party protests? And aren't you protesting the wrong people? The Government gave the banks our money, and the banks had to take it. It was not optional'. But I had chosen just to observe. Something about the vibe suggested that logic would not take the day. I now regret that decision.
At least the homeless people who typically who inhabit the park seemed to enjoy the company of the student and their willingness to share their food and water. That was nice.
