Bob Lewis Loves The Revolution

I ran into Bob Lewis, the co-founder of Greenmarket, at Union Square during the rally on N17. He said he’d been having lunch nearby with “some Canadian agriculturalists” and noticed the protest. He said he liked the sign against the Ivory Tower because the college he’d gone to, Antioch, didn’t have an ivory tower. He also reflected on the symbolic significance of having a protest in Union Square, where many battles for labor rights were waged throughout the twentieth century.
