RNC Day 4, can we have our city back?

The do gooders are back at it.  Link and continued discussion at this original link

 

Images from the anti-war march.  The march started at the Capitol marching towards John Ireland.

Love The Lawyers Guild in the neon green

 

 

Chalking the intersection “Arrest Bush Not Us”

Once John Ireland was blocked, the crowd headed over to Cedar but was stopped at 12th

Sewer covers secured for the week

The first set of protesters to be detained.  The police surrounded the organizers of the Anti-War Committee.

 

 

After the arrests and not getting anywhere on Cedar, the crowd turned around and headed towards Marion

 

The group took a right on University from Marion.  The intention was to find a route to the Xcel.  This became difficult as the overpasses were blocked

And then the concussion grenades and gas were deployed.  Couldn’t tell if the police gave a warning, the helicopters were low enough to drown out everything.  The police wouldn’t disperse the group in this manor unless they had given a warning, right?  The green cloud in the lower center is gas and concussion grenades.

Surrounded by police on horse back in the Sears parking lot.  Tried to go one way, police said to go the other way.  Turned around and the police on the other side were closing in.  Tricky, tricky.

Those unfortunate to be in attendance may think twice about doing that again.

Those poor horses.  No one asked them.

    I was at that one too. It was fun. I escaped just as it was getting bad. One cop on horseback was saying, “Sit down and put you hands on your head, or you WILL be trampled!”
