Pictures Of Arrests Of Journalist And Anti-War Protesters Near Jones and Market On M20
In the late afternoon on March 20th 2004, a small group of antiwar protesters was trapped by police on the sidewalk near Ellis and Jones. Eventually the police let the protesters leave and they moved up Jones St. towards Market St. Right before the crowd reached Market, an unattended police motorcycle fell over and the police rushed the front of the crowd. One bystander was severely beaten by the police and had his arm broken, three others were arrested. One of those arrested was an Indybay videographer who was filming the arrests. The videographer had his camera and a bone in his hand broken when the police attacked. The man who was severely beaten had to be taken away in a paramedic vehicle due to his injuries.
