Mother's Day demonstration

Some things never change. Insults and intimidation from carriage drivers were the order of the day at a peaceful demonstration last weekend, but the activists carried on. They're used to it. I just received this video of the very successful event. I'm told that a number of tourists decided not to take a ride after getting more information about this industry and learning about the plight of the horses. I hope these people spread the word!
The infamous "ponytail guy" driver can be seen and heard in this clip. Kind of funny and pathetic.

Was this Driver released from a Mental Ward? Why didn't the cops do anything? I mean I saw Homeless people with mental disabilities behave better than this lunatic. This driver is CRAZY. Funny except for the horses.
