Occupying Sixth Avenue

Just for a few blocks. Heading to the subway latish from work, I ran across a few hundred very good-hearted young persons of varied races and affiliations heading uptown in the middle of the street, chanting, and I tagged along, while thousands cheered on the sides. Every time we got to a cross-street with a red light in our direction people from behind would rush it, presumably to make sure the traffic couldn't take advantage of a weak spot in the formation. At 46th Street we ran into a very large number of cops, and almost everybody moved to the sidewalk on the right, with what further intentions I don't know, because I went to the sidewalk on the left and wandered home, but it was certainly bracing to spend a little time in that crowd.
