The crowd of over 150 and growing gathered outside of the Arboretum Place studios of Richmond ABC affiliate WRIC beginning at 6:00 PM. The protesters were allowed to park in a nearby parking area after 6:00 PM. ABC as spent the entire day pushing the government health care plan being pushed by President Obama.

The crowd tried to remain on the grass, but there were a lot of

people and that respectfully kept off of the landscaped flower beds. I personally counted 150 people and more kept coming as the news hour progressed. WRIC Channel 8 had news cameras and a truck outside the studios to cover the event. The crowd was led in cheers of “Do we want government health care” and “Should we apologize for Democracy and freedom” with each question answered by a resound “No!” from the vocal crowd.

About 45 minutes into the protest, two Chesterfield Police cars drove up and one officer used his loud speaker to give the crowd instructions and a warning not to block access or the roadway. He was very professional and polite and the crowd gladly obeyed and cheered when he asked if everyone understood. The officers then moved off a block down the street in case those crazy Conservative and Libertarian’s upset with the way things are going became unruly.

The “organizers” of the impromptu gathering worked hard to make sure access was not blocked and things remained peaceful, even before the police showed up.

I took a few photos of the crowd and enjoyed the positive atmosphere of change in the right dirrection advocated by all.

    Tom, I saw you from a distance, but didn't get a chance to talk to you. It was a good crowd and a good event. Everyone was respectful, but determined to make their voices heard.

    Good to see 150-160 upholding our European-American tradition and concept of peaceful protest. This was done at almost the last minute and attracted this large of a crowd. Keep up the good work!!!

    Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
