Second Line Parade for Ray Deter
Angels looked on , the ones on 3rd street that is . Bicyclists were annoyed with blocked bike lanes . Traffic stopped in the streets .
Perhaps as many as 300 friends of Ray Deter marched , danced , paraded from 41 first avenue to 6th street between avenue B and C to traditional New Orleans funeral tunes played by a jazz band Monday night.

Memorial for Monica Shay Turns to Protest
Saturday evening friends of Monica Shay gathered for a memorial near the entrance to Tompkins Square Park . As the evening progressed several of the elder East Village activist/revolutionaries took banners to the street stopping , among other vehicles , a city bus.
For a short time the event in the middle of avenue A was every bit a traditional East Village protest with all the proselytising rhetoric and theatrics . Rather than running wild in the streets though , the revolutionary corp took a less challenging walk through Tompkins Square Park to the iconic East Village symbol of capitalist oppression , the Cristadora .
Some what late in the progress of the protest police did arrive on avenue B where the protesters were blocking the entrance of the Cristadora .The protesters slowly dispersed with some returning to the center of T.S.P. to continue the memorial .No one was arrested.
