I thought I'd start a thread and report from the perspective of a small town #ows protest. I live in the City of New London, CT, Population. 25671 It's considered to be the "city" or urban center of Southeastern CT. On Sunday, Oct. 16th, I decided to join the local Occupy Wall Street protest, called Occupy New London. I found out from a facebook page that there were protests held each day in downtown New London from 4pm to 6pm and decided to join in. I made my sign based on a sign I saw on the internet and packed up a chair and my two dogs and headed for downtown. ^^^^^ On the left is my Chow Chow-- Deuce. A handsome beast and my protector. On the right is Roxy. A rescue from Puerto Rico, part Chow, part mystery dog, she's my watchdog and is the alpha dog. She's a hunter that has completely decimated the squirrel population in my yard. This picture was taken earlier on. By 5:00 I'd say we had about 30 people. About 10 of them were from a Union -- the Amalgamated Transit Union -- and are the people that run the local buses in the area. There were two crazy homeless people making a lot of noise and the rest were just everyday Americans of all shapes and sizes. One thing I did want to report on was that we got a lot of horn love and thumbs up signs from the locals that were driving by. I was actually rather surprised at how much support we got including people driving porsches, hummers, Audis as well as trucks and buses. We even got a thumbs up from a couple of the local cops. It was nice. I don't have much more to report at this time and hope to be able to keep attending the protests as my schedule allows.
