People supporting Black Block tactics, as well as journalists marched down market, and then down 7th onto Mission. Where we were brutalized and arrested.

364:
374: Running back toward 7th(which was blocked anyway,no alleys to run down, we're fucked.)
375:Pigs coming down the road running.
376: This fuckin facist beat the daylights out of someone coming around a muni bus that was in the blockade. He gloats about it.
379: After the police squeezed us violently with their blockade, they began beating people, after I had raised my hands and told the man to not do it. Here I am lying on my back after he hit me, which in a few seconds 4 or 5 people fall on top of me.
383: Police beating a woman.
387: Solidarity in brutal police blockade.
395&7: The pens they put us in.

The cops ambushed us from sixth street, they came running around the corner, hitting people yelling,"Run the other way!" We were carouled like sheep as they beat those who tried to get through their nazi line. Here we are running the other way.
§Picture of a row of fuck-ups.

This fuckin facist beat the daylights out of someone coming around a muni bus that was in the blockade. He gloats about it. At this point the cops have beat a ton of people for no reason. Remember, there was no order to disperse, even at this point. They broke the Block into three or four segments.
§Us

walking down either market, or 7th, or mission... the only streets that our peaceful protest even got to touch.

After the police squeezed us violently with their blockade, they began beating people, after I had raised my hands and told the man to not do it. Here I am lying on my back after he hit me, which in a few seconds 4 or 5 people fall on top of me. That is the picture of the pigface.
§Squeezed.

These corporate facists squeeze us for about two hours, arresting activists randomly, random beatings. Most people were sitting chanting, or singing.
§Another squeeze

They brought protestors here on some pier. Many,many buses came, each person and bus recieved a tremendous roar. It was beautiful.

The other side of the warehouse. BTW they fed us orange juice, an orange, ham&cheese sandwiches/cookies. Reminded me of Elementary school. Some people were taunted for eating their food.
§Better Tactics

These fucks are always watching us. We have made them look like fools, they beat the shit out of us. They have identities of many people of black block tactics. Stick to Market street, and always think about escape routes, yesterday there was no where to go.
