Protest photos galore – political celebrities, posters, marches, and more – at our Hofstra Debate Photo Gallery on Flickr
Above: Mike McDermott for Congress at the Hofstra Presidential Debates Hofstra Debate. Mike McDermott is on the ballot, as a Libertarian, for Congress, 3rd District, Long Island, NY. Even though he is ballot-qualified, News12 is excluding him from their debates.
Note: Green Party candidate for President Jill Stein and her running mate, Cheri Honkala were arrested for trying to participate in the debates. Though, they are presently out of jail. (And, the publicity must be good, because I think that their site is down/overloaded at 7:24pm)
Above: Dinosaur with Obama and Romney poster. Hofstra Debate Protest Art. Our friend Walter was one of the first protesters to make it to the local, Newsday coverage. Then, his poster photo was linked at the Guardian UK debate coverage! He got great press with this interesting “anti-both parties” sign, created by a local occupier from Long Island.
