Brendan Hunt helped organize a very successful 24-hour drum circle in front of the New York City Mayor's house, to protest the eviction of peaceful Occupy activists and the destruction of their property. This event was covered in news outlets worldwide and Brendan was even on the cover of the NY Daily News the next day! This first short blurb was published by ANIMALNewYork at 2:08 PM along with a bunch of photos as the protest was still occurring:
Drum Circle Forms Near Mayor's Town House
By Bucky Turco - The “Occupy Bloomberg’s Mansion Drum Circle Protest And Love-In Art Show” has begun. As promised on their Facebook page, protesters attempted to assemble at East 79th Street in front of Mayor Bloomberg’s mansion to annoy the shit out of him (and neighbors), but the entire block is cut off and the NYPD is not allowing anyone through. The group is being sequestered to 79th Street and Madison Avenue. They have vowed to remain here for 24 hours, but we will not be hanging around to confirm.
This picture of Brendan Hunt after being evicted from Zuccotti Park was published in the UK Metro and other news outlets worldwide.
