Thanks again to Teamsters Local 445 and the Hudson Valley Area Labor Federation for letting me hitch a ride on their bus down to Occupy Wall Street Wednesday. Thanks also for this t-shirt. They gave me a really cool Teamsters baseball cap too but my old blogging comrade Tom Watson swiped it. Have to admit though, it looked pretty good on him, although the whole length of the march he kept having to explain to members of various unions who stopped him to embrace him and call him “brother” he was only a voluntary Teamster.
I wore my T-shirt but did not get hugged.
I’m going through my notes and editing my photos from the march and will start posting reports this afternoon.
In the meantime, Jeremiah Horrigan of the Times Herald-Record was on hand to cover our group and you can read his story (with video) right here.
And another longtime blogging friend, Lindsay Beyerstein, now lead writer for the Sidney Hillman Foundation and a fine photojournalist, was there and you can see some of the photos she took yesterday here.
