March For Bernie 2, Pasadena and Los Angeles

by johnk Sunday, Feb. 28, 2016 at 8:16 PM

Went to this event, and took a few photos.

March For Bernie 2, ...

Any veteran of LA marches knows the drill - you organize groups to show up, and some regulars show, and if the media pushes it, new people show up. Then the event starts big, and during the march, loses some people. At the end is a rally that's sparsely attended.

The March for Bernie was something new - a march that grew as it walks through the Old Pasadena shopping district. It appeared to be adding marchers from the people who were shopping.

Not only that, but the motorists were honking a lot of support. At some intersections, it seemed like half of them were giving a "thumbs up" or raising a fist, or hollering with us, or cheering.

And the chants were spontaneous and largely unamplified. Aside from the classic "What do we want? When do we want it?", there were two or three that were variations on Dodgers chants that they do at games. That's a way to get a chant going.

There were some great signs. This is a good idea for making a sign that doubles as protection from the harmful UV rays from our life-giving star.

I'm from the Montebello/Monterey Park/Rosemead area, so I'm always happy to see people from these cities with signs.
