yes it was limited in size but big enough to make a point. to all those who said you cannot pull off such an event wihout hundreds of hours of organizing- well you were wrong. you don't nee organization all the time. the march went where it wanted without any hassle from the police. we even took grand, walking the wrong way!! i thought thoday's events were great until we stopped at the intersection. as long as we kept moving we were making a point, causing some disruption but also encouraged by drviers/standers-by. when the sit-down occured we lost favor with the 'general public' and just looked like annoying hippes. no offense to those arrested but it seemed pointless. hopefully, someone can get your charges dropped.
the pepper spray was completely unneccesary as well but over all the cops were well-resrained. i think they are starting to realize that it causes less chaos to let us do our thing and move on, rather than trying to control where we go, or stop us completely.
