AntiWallStreet March

It's Happening
According to the Guardian, the march with representatives from some the U.S.'s largest unions, backed by students from the national action day, was very peaceful until nightfall. As most of us on the east coast can attest, yesterday was a beautiful sunny fall day with perfect weather for a protest.

Unfortunately, at nightfall there were pockets of ugliness when some of the 15,000 protesters attempted to enter the restricted area leading to Wall Street. Videos and reports have surfaced that some protesters were pepper sprayed. The following video is of a senior officer swinging his baton at marchers who were attempting to enter a restricted area.

What is interesting in this 41-second video is that all protest participants seem to be armed with either a camera or a cell phone camera.

The cops may be experiencing partial blindness today as a result of all those flashes.
