The plumbing workers' tent is gone - for so a commenter on the previous post says it was - and so are the (cough, ahem) protesters. I just checked the webcam aimed at the Square, and it shows two pedestrians where the few (ahem, cough) protesters were, earlier.
Meanwhile, the temp has dropped from 52 to 40, and the winds are whipping through there at a pretty good clip; I suspect the windchill is below freezing.
Not the best day for hanging out in the park, waving signs and chanting/singing about ... well, whatever they thought they were protesting. I have no doubt they - if protesters they truly were - were quite sincere in their beliefs. Most of us happen to disagree, that's all.
Once again, reality trumps visions of la-la land, where we're all drinking the socially-just kool-aid.
