Are these really "hippies"? It looks like these were taken recently. While the word "hippie" may have a general application, it seems to me that hippies in a more formal use of the word are a group of people of a particular generation in the 1960s who had long hair, ideas about communal lifestyles and free love, advocated free drug use, listened to psychedelic music, and had a more specific set of political ambitions. I'm not sure just any sort of sloppy looking liberal people who are vaguely against Republicans are automatically "hippies". Perhaps "liberal activists" would be a better category for these pictures?
