Why yes, that is a pile of manure in the Chase branch lobby



[UPDATE: This was the work of Rev. Billy.]

This instant-classic photo has been making the rounds on the blog-and-tumblrsphere... Yesterday, protestors placed a pile of manure dirt in the entrance of the Chase branch on Second Avenue at 10th Street (home of the former Second Avenue Deli...) (Via Marklow)

Per I ought to be Working...

This happened across the street from my apartment. The protest happened yesterday. Chase is one of the biggest investors in mountain top removal mining. The protesters said they would leave a mountaintop in every Chase. They did.

I think it was pretty baller. Also didn’t hurt that the bulk of the protesters were part of a church choir that was singing lovely inspiration tunes.

It wasn't manure it was dirt. There was a note on the top telling Chase to stop mountaintop removal or something like that. I don't recall the exact wording of the note.

Beat me to it; I grew up shoveling horseshit in Brooklyn and it never looked like that!

Hmm... I think I liked this better when I thought it was manure!
