June 5th G8 Breakaway March Photos
I arrived kind of late to the "breakaway," which gathered at the ANSWER rally and marched away, only to be harassed by cops and have 5 people arrested, rather late...
I joined the crowd about 3 blocks from Justin Herman Plaza. They were in a bit of a standoff with the police. We marched down Embarcadero on the sidewalk, and the cops chased a kid into the fountain at JHP. We had a nice long standoff there at the Plaza, but the cops chose to not beat us up and arrest us all in front of the permitted ANSWER rally.
Cop chases youth into fountain
The cops really like to use their batons to push people...
is it for shooting those little bean bags, or tear gas, or pepper spray?
