I believe the speakers name was 'Alton' although I have no idea about the spelling of his name. He works for the october 22nd protests every year, and was an amazing speaker, you're right.

the woman who was ticketed was interviewed shortly after and said that she had been walking in a crosswalk, on the walk signal, when the police harrassed and then ticketed her. and apparently it was something like a 237 dollar fine.
