In what some city workers say is the first demonstration at the new plaza in front of city hall, a group has gathered on International Women’s Day to protest funding spent on the Herbert Dreiseitl water sculpture, saying it could be better spent on women’s issues – supporting, for example, SafeHouse Center, a shelter for victims of domestic violence. A police officer has emerged and has taken down cardboard signs that were tied with string to the sculpture. The protesters – including Alan Haber and Odile Hugonot Haber – remain, holding signs directed at the passing traffic. [photo] [photo] [photo]
