Anonymous' Second OpBART Protest Shuts Civic Center for Hours, 8/22/11: photos, 2 of 2
Anonymous called for a second BART protest on August 22nd. Those who had gathered at Civic Center street-level had previously marched on Market, leading BART to close the Powell Street station repeatedly, and then returned to the Civic Center area. These photos are a continuation of the photo series begun at http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2011/08/25/18688634.php and cover a march that began in the evening.

A few women were beaten by police running up from Larkin. Over 30 people were detained, including about a half dozen journalists. At least two journalists without passes or credentials were able to show police their web pages in order to secure their own release. The rest were arrested, booked, and released later in the night.
