After performing at New York City's Symphony Space, the legendary folk singer fell in with a group of roughly 1,000 protestors and marched more than 30 blocks down Broadway. Upon reaching Columbus Circle, he sang a version of 'We Shall Overcome,' one of the many up-with-the-people anthems he's helped to popularize over the years.

Throughout the march, Seeger and the demonstrators chanted such slogans as, "We are the 99 percent," a rallying call in the movement against corporate greed.
