I went out to the United for Peace & Justice Oct27 action – Human Chain for Peace – in Philly. I heard one cop say 4,200 people showed up. I consider that an incredible number considering that it was pouring rain all morning and drizzling until about 1p.
Activists lined up across the city forming a human chain at Noon and started marching to Independence Mall (in between the National Constitution Center and the Liberty Bell) for a rally. There were 10 other cities where actions were held. Did anybody from the pond make it to one?
