Monday's parting shots

The second "HONK! for Ukraine," led by Stephan Said, took place this evening... the musicians met on Astor Place at 5:30 before moving on to Veselka on Second and Ninth Street for a sing-a-long. The procession ended in Tompkins Square Park... 
Find out more about the song "Glory To Ukraine/Слава Україні" — "a Global Call to Action to uplift and support the people of Ukraine." Per the HONK! website
The melody of the song is adapted from the Ukrainian folk song "Oy Marichko," and features renowned Ukrainian trumpeter Semjon Barlas (now in Berlin). All proceeds go to Ukrainian-American organization Razom For Ukraine, playing a vital role in relief efforts.
Thanks to Steven for the top photo and Eden for the shot in the Park...
