During a hot New York summer afternoon and evening thousands of anti-Bush and anti-Republican protesters took to the streets. The number of actions were hard to even count and the following are photos from only a small portion of the actions and protests (The Shut-up-a-thon at the Fox News building, a direct action at Herald Square, and a war resisters league mass arrest, among others.)

For a few hours at least, excluding Madison Square Garden, New York was liberated from Republicans.
