The Adbusters / Anonymous protest. After a couple of hours at the Fed, the group moved to the JFK memorial. Definitely one of the stranger protests I've seen. My impression is that no one at the protest was in complete agreement about what was going on. No two people seemed to be there for the same reason. Some thought it was a Ron Paul promotion, some were there because they didn't like a particular Fed policy, others had a vague dislike of corporations, others seemed unhappy because of the unemployment rate, some protesters seemed to have gotten lost on their way to a Tea Party meeting, at least one sign complained about homeless people, some were anti-globalization. I wrote a blog post about what I learned during and since my visit to the protest.
