The three-week-old campout in a lower Manhattan plaza looks 	      like a jumble of tattered sleeping bags, but teams of volunteers working 	      on food, sanitation, health care and other needs keep the shifting population 	      of protesters functioning like an impromptu city within the city.

Grannies at the G8 Join us!!
This  is both a protest against how women are still being treated in our  society as well as an homage to our foremothers who fought in the  streets, starved in the jails and died for our rights.  Rights which we,  the women of America, still do not have equal protection under the law.
