A living treasure, the man I most want to interview, got down in the crowd with We the People last night, as he’s been doing for, what, 60 years? Here’s the video.

92 year old Pete Seeger marched down Broadway to Occupy Columbus Circle in solidarity for the 99% Occupy Wall Street. David Amram, Arlo Guthrie, Top Chapin sing “This Little Light of Mine” Odetta was there in spirit. “We are the 99%”

If [he] can walk 36 blocks at midnight with Occupy Wall Street, then so can you.

92-year-old folk legend Pete Seeger (seen waving cane at 50-second mark) marches 36 blocks with Occupy Wall Street from a performance at Symphony Space on Broadway and 95th Street in the Upper West Side of Manhattan down to Broadway and 59th Street for a sing-a-long at Columbus Circle.

This footage was shot shortly after midnight as the protesters neared Columbus Circle.
