DC Protest Timelapse

Yesterday, fifth anniversary of the Iraq occupation, was supposed to be a big protest day, though Metro didn’t feel like it. Nothing much showed up on traffic cameras around DC, except for one at McPherson Square, where people seemed to be confronting a police line while a paper-machie bomb with a Strangelove-style Bush effigy atop it looked on. I used a small wget-like script to fetch images on a two second refresh, and got this time lapse.

By late afternoon it had started raining, and the protesters were gone. Photos on DCist.
