New York City. Demo Against Horse-Drawn Carriages. Nov. 1, 2008. Bloomberg's Genteel Tradition.

And they thought things have come to a lull, the issue forgotten, and the uproar a matter of history. Not! As you can see from the announcement below, the spirit of protest is very much alive. How could it die out? Each day the horses pull carriages is a reminder not of how great our city is, but how cruel it can be. This is one New York City tradition ( Mayor Bloomberg's concept ) that must go. It's a tradition alright, one of pain and misery throughout the four seasons of the year when the mayor and city council members are snug and warm in their plush offices. Coffee, croissant? Go ahead while animals pull heavy loads for the sake of human entertainment.
