Today I am going to downtown San Diego in order to document the sympathy occupy wall street protest that is planned for today, October 7th, at 4:30 pm. I will be there for roughly two to three hours with the intention to take photos and possibly video in the role of an outside observer.
Full disclosure: I am a tea party sympathizer and a independent minded conservative. However- today I will be an observer and attempt to provide broad, contextual coverage of events as they take place. I am not attending to incite or to provoke, but instead to answer some questions:
- Who is behind the event?
- Who will actually attend? (in broad terms, not specific persons)
- How many will attend?
- What will be the agreed upon central message?
- Will the protesters be civil?
