NYC Convention Trip Report Day 3 (Monday)
Hey guys, what's happening. Its Tuesday morning now. Yesterday was kind of a quiet day. there were a couple of protests that you may be reading about. I, however was unable to attend. I was trying to find out information about what was going on, and could not really find any details. I was told by a person staying in my hotel about the UN protest, but I didn't know what time it was for, also I spent a lot of the day yesterday writing up the stories from Sunday, and resting up. I haven't done this much walking in a long time. Being from L.A. we drive everywhere, but here in Manhattan, you walk, or take the subway, or cab. If you own a car there is never anywhere to park, so you have to spend a fortune parking everywhere you go. I did have an a little run in with the cops over by the Garden yesterday, I will get to that story tonight.
OK I got info on what's going on today. United for Peace and Justice is announcing that today is a day of civil disobedience. There are several demonstrations going on. One held by the War resisters leage starts at the world trade center, where they want people to show up in white, representing mourning, they are going to march to the convention site, where they will hold a die in. They expect many people to be arrested. Read about it here Another group called A31 True security has a few events planned for today the first protest starts at noon in front of the NY office of Homeland security 633 3rd Ave. I am about to head over to that location now to cover the events. I'll write up a report on the days activities tonight. Try to get over there if you can make it.
Unfortunately this is probably my last day in NYC, this is an expensive town, and I am running out of cash. I am about to check out of my Hotel, and leave my high speed modem. I may have to do todays update tomorrow when I get home.
Thanks for checking out the site. Check back often
