This Is What Democracy Looks Like

Photos of the vigil and community meeting at the Federal Reserve Bank, Embarcadero, San Francisco. Fifty-plus around noon, and about 200 at 6pm. Some were part of the community meeting (6pm daily), others held vigil along Market Street.

It's always a bit of a shock to be part of the chaos of direct democracy. Voices are heard, and facilitators are doing a great job, but the process is cumbersome, and as the circle grows, some form of spokescouncil will be needed to coordinate the various strands of action.

Police raided the occupation a few days ago and confiscated belongings, canopies, etc. Police now have a cordon preventing people from getting under the cover of the Fed's portico, but the weather has been mild the past few days.
