2010 in Review: a video compilation
From storming PEPCO at “Funk the Warming” to storming hotels full of IMF delegates, from fur protests in freezing snow to a tent city in triple-digit heat, it’s been quite a year in DC!
This video mixes our local protest and direct action scene with highlights of major actions elsewhere that place it in context.
Critical Mas bike rides, which occur on the first Friday of every mouth in DC (next one Jan 7!) serve as dividers between months, except that there is no video of a Jan or Feb ride and I was at Quantico (Bradley Manning solidarity protest) the weekend of the August ride.
The year’s extremes of both winter and summer weather are featured along with a variety of actions on climate-related subjects.
Major highlights include last Winter’s “Fur wars,” several HLS protests, the treesit in W Va against mountaintop removal coal mining, Funk the War in March, the Spring and Fall IMF protests, the summer Tent City on Parcel 42, and more.
