Peace Encampment Rousted

The police just closed down the Peace Encampment.
About 8 am this morning the police taped off the area where protesters had encamped since the beginning of the war on Iraq. I saw about 14 officers (not in riot gear). People who looked like peace camp people were gathered on the corner outside of the tape. One guy was inside the tape in handcuffs being searched. Todd was taken from the corner by an officer to a van on the other side of the street--ostensibly being arrested.
