Folk legend Pete Seeger marched to Columbus Circle last night, to support Occupy Wall Street.

PeaceSmithies tend to admire Pete for his gift to folk song and sing-a-long, and also for his work through Clearwater to cleanup the Hudson River.

Some videos below for those who may have missed the late night march and concert.

Attendees included: David Amram, Arlo Guthrie, Tao Rodriguez-Seeger, Roy who helps with the activist section at Clearwater, and thousands of 99%ers.

    Seeing Pete here brought tears to my eyes.

    If anyone who reads this comment knows Pete Seeger, please ask him to write some new verses to his wonderful song, “Banks of Marble.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x-o3CJytIPE

    Pete sang it so many years ago — and with a few new verses, it would be perfect for the “Occupy” movement today. As the last verse of this song says: “Then we might own those banks of marble, with a guard at every door. And we would share those vaults of silver that we have sweated for!” Perfect.

    And if you do talk to Pete, please thank him for the many years of songs and spirit he has given to all of us. We love you, Pete! xoxoxo
