Political Rally!

I don't publish a lot of political stuff - there are plenty of other places for that.  But this political rally was so unique that I felt compelled to show it.  The designer of this rally has been putting these cartoon characters individually all around the area and today, she decided to assemble them for a protest on the steps of City Hall.

This is very clever and an awesome use of space and colour!  The designer made sure to point out that friend and foe alike have joined forces for this protest.

The cause is a serious one.  In the southern part of the state, various companies are pushing to get permits to allow them to use a process called hydraulic fracturing - fracking - to break up the underground deposits and release natural gas in the Marcellus Shale geography.  People living in Pennsylvania, where such permits have been issued, report ruined wells, foul smells and toxic groundwater due to the chemicals used in the fluid injected into the ground.  It is very controversial here in New York, where Love Canal and PCBs in the Hudson River are very recent memories..
