Democracy Now! and Al Jazeera both estimated 400,000 people, the NY Times said 300,000, people who actually attended said more. The LA Times hardly mentioned it. What do you think? What kind of impact do you think the march will have?

In a sense, you're right, although you should see all the trash left behind after the Rose Bowl parade each year. Tons more than this!! I did read that trash cans were overflowing, which means NYC didn't put enough out.
The diff being that the Rose Parade is a bunch of still drunk people on New Years morn, not a bunch of supposed environmentalists bitching how people aren't taking care of the planet while trashing it themselves.
It is both shameful and hypocritical...
You ask where Occupy is? They've evaluated all they've learned about community organizing, have put together a packet of info (that you can get online), and are helping communities get organized worldwide now.
