Hundreds gathered in Jose Martí Park yesterday in Little Havana, tromped east on Calle Ocho into Brickell then paraded through downtown Miami in a protest march that heard just as many "Sak ap fets?" as "Que bola aseres?" alongside chants of "End The Fed," and "If you can hear my voice, you are a part of the 99%." Click through for the photo highlights.


A strong police presence guarded the march from angry rush hour motorists stuck in traffic. Orange plastic clappers, carnaval whistles, and multiple bullhorns created a festival din less charged by anger than excitement at voicing dissent. Aged couples, babies, and the youth of South Florida politically activated the landscape, and we were there to document some of the action, which ended with a rally at the Government Center.

Here are our pics:
