Five Sad Pictures From Today’s Anti-NRA March

The Media Platform

” I swung by the Stop the NRA March this afternoon to watch the protest and march against gun violence. I was late, but caught two of the speeches before the crowd started marching.

Participating organizations include Public Campaign, Occupy the NRA, CREDO, Every Child Matters, Moveon, United For Change, USA, New Yorkers Against Gun Violence, The Other 98%, and We Act Radio.

As Buzzfeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro noted earlier this morning, the event featured the debut of a new anti-NRA poster created by Shepard Fairey – the designer of the famous Obama ‘Hope’ poster.

A generous estimation of the crowd size would have been about 100 people, including members of the media.

Here are some of the photos:

    We did come across this video from AFP but it is undated and we could not determine if it was from today or a similar rally held in December . Judging from the attire we are guessing that this video might be from today . Note the camera angle used on the marchers … LOL … filmed from knee height , thus creating an impression of lots of participants and avoiding the troublesome empty background sure to give away the sparseness of the crowd .
