This last Saturday, you marched. You rallied. You marched in big cities. You rallied in other cities. It was a glorious day for Democracy.

Over the years, Streetsblog has noted the importance of the public space as a place for protest and political activism. From election-night celebrations in 2008, to Occupy, to Critical Mass, to the demonstrations after the acquittal of George Zimmerman to the rallies and marches this weekend; a safe public space is critical to maintaining a healthy democracy.

This weekend, you gathered in the streets. You rallied in the parks. You marched through the cities. Below are some of the images you created from the weekend mixed with some other media. Enjoy, and march on.
