Bailout=Bullshit, originally uploaded by Lindsay Beyerstein.

Yesterday afternoon NYC residents held a protest against the bailout yesterday on Wall St., one of many spontaneous protests held throughout the country, organized via blogs and email online. NY1 reports "The rally was one of 220 demonstrations in dozens of states across the country."

Rank and file blue collar workers were also on hand, as well as Jesse Jackson, and Union leaders. Reuters reported, "Hard hats, transit workers, machinists, teachers and other labor unionists railed against the U.S. government’s proposed bailout of Wall Street on Thursday in a protest steps from the New York Stock Exchange."

NY Mag has video here.

There are photos of the protest up on Flickr, here, here, and here.
