The demostration moved away from one barricade, and around to another. The crowd chanted loudly, proclaiming its defiance of a falsely declared state of emergency. Even after quite few hours, the crowd was still large and voicing its message.
Peace vs World War - The choice is clear, and the fate of humanity may rest in the balance. Bush is a madman whose father declared nuclear war winnable, and who is now parroting his father.
Rather than take a sane path to sustainable energy use and conservation, Bush is preparing the country for world war over oil resources. A very apt sign. There is every opportunity to take a different path than the one Bush has chosen. Global nuclear war is the choice of a madman.
Once again, the state of emergency was declared in order to aggressively move people back from a barricade location chosen by the police. The troops moved in, and pushed and hit people with their sticks. This was at Salmon and Park. One trooper hit me in the back and side 4-5 times with his stick. Of course I could not move any faster than the people around me. All the sticks, and corporate media propaganda in the world cannot hide the truth of what theis country is becoming.
One person being arrested
Stop the Bush Terror!
Old Davis there is not as happy when it is his picture getting taken rather than other way round.
Imperial Stormtrooper, weapon in hand.
As day turned to night, the riot cops were once again pepper spraying people on Broadway by the theatre. They set up a barricade at the halfway mark on the street, and then use violence to move it back. Is this a calculated excuse to attack and intimidate the people?
