Sunday Night: Occupy Wall Street, Ani DiFranco, Anaïs Mitchell Occupy Washington Square

Yesterday, Sunday evening 11/20, Washington Square Park:




Carrying large blue and yellow tents on poles, people streamed to the park last night. The colorful tents lit up Washington Square, spreading messages such as “Occupy to Liberate” and”Foreclose on Banks, Not People, and “You Cannot Evict An Idea Whose Time Has Come.”

Anais Mitchell + friends visit WSP post-Le Poisson Rouge show

Anaïs Mitchell performed last night at Le Poisson Rouge with last minute special guest, Ani Di Franco. After the show, the two singers, joined by audience members and others, marched from the venue on nearby Bleecker Street to WSP, singing along the way. This was around 10… 11 p.m. Nicely, no overbearing police presence.

From Twitter:

@MollyKnefel: Ani DiFranco is marching people to Washington Square Park for an #OWS protest. Leaving from @lprnyc on Bleecker now. Get there!

@ohhheyalana: After her concert, Anais Mitchell led us on a march to Washington Square Park, singing patriotic songs the whole [way]
