Simple Twist of Fate

Video footage out from Occupy Boston and the Oct 7th action to stop the Keystone XL pipeline and express solidarity with Idle No More's global day of actions.  You get some behind the scenes perspective of organizing efforts, including how in the world that long black pipeline with a protest sign on it appears to float down the street.  Also, a very stirring moment as demonstrators proclaim themselves, one by one, as standing up against this dirty oil project.  Activists were prepared for up to 37 arrests while blocking the doors of the Tip O'Neill Federal Building.  In an interesting turn of events, however, no one was arrested, since no one was trying to get into the building due to the government shutdown.   Now that makes me think about Bob Dylan's song even though he was writing about a more personal relationship.
