Photo gallery: Organized protest targets Comcast’s ‘corporate agenga’

    In what was meant to be a mass protest against Comcast, people of Philadelphia stood outside the Pennsylvania Convention Center Thursday morning to opposed what organizers call the company’s “corporate agenda.”
    Fight for Philly joined with other faith and community leaders to protest Comcast’s share of taxes, its membership in the American Legislative Exchange Council and its “exorbitant executive compensation.”
    Wearing colored shirts and pig noses to show their frustrations, participants used megaphones and drums to call attention to their effort.
    The protesters turned their attention to Comcast’s internal dealings and its relationship with the FCC, and fewer people turned out than were expected. As photographer Nat Hamilton noted, there were more police than protesters.
