Amidst heavy police presence, 5-600 people rallied outside the Starbucks on 36th & Madison in Manhatten. Protesters marched to another store 2 blocks away; and then returned to the original rally spot. Police proceeded to surround the march before it reached the store, arresting two of the main organizers of the rally.

These vans lined both sides of 35th St., while 36th St was also lined with police vehicles. I counted about 20 motorcycle police, and 20 folks who looked to be undercover and coordinating plans with commanding officers of the rally.

According to various rally organizers, it is illegal for the NYPD to be videotaping individuals in rallies unless they commit a crime. This is a common tactic of police across the country to help identify protesters.
