Peaceful Protest

Peaceful Protest

I was in the right place at the right time I guess :) Just happened to be in the Love Park section of Philadelphia this past weekend. I heard tuba, and a chant coming from the direction of the Ben Franklin Parkway. Luckily I was already equipped with my telephoto lens already mounted, so I started snapping away.
Over the past couple of months, with the national financial crisis wrecking havoc, this put Philadelphia as well as other metro cities in a crisis as well.
Mayor Michael Nutter, in an effort to balance the city budget has proposed to close.... that's right .... CLOSE 15 City Libraries. Well you know that hasn't gone over well with the city at all.
So this was a march in protest to that proposed budget cut. I don't think this march got any real "PRESS" in the Philly Metro Area .
Be sure to click on the photo to see the larger sizes of this, and other shots from that march on my Flickr page
