'Banks got bailed out, we got sold out' on Central Avenue
A day later (Oct. 2), three additional observations I find encouraging. The action appeared to be organized exclusively through Facebook and to a lesser degree Twitter, allowing organizers to bypass the conventional news media, which is often unresponsive, especially to advance coverage. Second, while most of the people taking part during the 90 minutes or so that I was there appeared to be under the age of 30, persons of all ages participated, including many veteran organizers, who seemed content with having younger activists at the helm. Finally, there were several gestures of support and little opposition or hostility expressed by pedestrians and passers-by.
