At 9 a.m the group that had gathered at the North Park Blocks was around 150, and was moving past the Benson up S. Broadway to meet others who are at S. Park Blocks.
There is a heavy police presence, big black truccks with storm troopers hanging off the sides, motorcycle cops, bike cops.
1 arrest of a guy standing in the median waving an American Flag. Cops arresting him were confronted by protesters, but just ignored this.
Cops are making sure all traffic signals are followed and that the crowd stays on the sidewalks. Whistles blown loudly and aggressive reaction whenever anyone steps off the curb into the street.
