Members of the Innu First nation in Quebec held a press conference Monday morning in front of the Hilton to voice their opposition to development by HydroQuebec on their ancestral lands. 

And approximately 50 protestors gathered in Battery Park for a peaceful Occupy New England event that featured political theater by Vermont troupe Bread and Puppet.

That performance featured a banjo player and actors dressed as sheep. 

Actors said they planned to picket outside Citizens Bank Monday afternoon. They say they’ve also planned an evening demonstration at the waterfront.
