Taking Back the Economy: A good time was had by all
Seacoast for Change activists joined NH Change That Works organizers and other local volunteers for a street action to protest corporate greed on Thursday, March 19 (in front of the Portsmouth Bank of America branch on Pleasant Street). It was cold out, but kinda fun. The local event, which was part of a nationally-coordinated demonstration to take back the economy for the middle class (takebacktheeconomy.org), received great news coverage-- check out the excellent pictures of familiar faces, Joan Hamblet, Joan Jacobs and Jane Hoffman from Reuters news service. The Portsmouth Herald, Foster's Daily Democrat, and WMUR-TV also covered the Portsmouth protest.
