    IMO the protesters seem to be chanting take the bridge shortly before a few people in the front of the crowd walk towards the police at which point the police seem to retreat rather than fight the potential push of the crowd which probably would have created more of a mess.

    It seems everyone handled things calmly for the most part and it surely could have turned out worse.

    The protesters are probably more than likely willing to be charged with a misdemeanor in order to prove their point or gain attention.

    From the video you posted IMO the protesters wanted to occupy the bridge.
    I agree. I have no doubt that SOME (many) protestors did want to occupy the bridge. I also have no doubt that the police ALLOWED them to do so when their job was to do the opposite.

    Do they also not have jobs? Sure looks that way.

    Cops blocking protesters suddenly turn around and lead protesters onto bridge.

    Cops with cuffs proceed to area of bridge where the only way out is into the water, turn and block the bridge.

    Other cops follow group of protesters onto bridge creating fourth side of box.

    It DOES look fishy.

    Video of the rear of the group that went onto the bridge would be useful.

    Demand three: Guaranteed living wage income regardless of employment.

    Demand nine: Open borders migration. Anyone can travel anywhere to work and live.




    wow, these guys really are idiots to think even 25% of the American people would support such radical changes to our society.

    as I said before, these idiots have no realistic goals.

    So then what? They essentially rounded them up and arrested them?

    I'm not sure what's going on with a lot of this crap here, it seems to me though that the entire episode was an exercise in Big Brother government.

    It's good to know that people like jmac are in the minority.
