the "official" organizers derailed the march and facilitated these arrests by extending the rally to 3 hours, thinning the crowd tenfold and giving the police time to bring in their reinforcements. we could have marched 5,000 strong, instead we were 500.

they did this when they heard they werent getting a permit to march. this was cowardice on the part of the organizers, and courage on the part of everyone who marched. at least we had each other's backs, even if "boston mobilization" and the self-appointed "leaders" of the movement did not.

this war demands a stronger response next time.

The cop in that bottom picture is #1695. I personally saw him hit a legal observer with that stick he's waving around in that picture two seperate times. I've seen him several times in protests in Boston and he always attacks someone before the day is over.

Yeah, the cop in the bottom photo, who the last poster said is #1695, stuck his club up to my chest and pushed me back, probably about 15 seconds before the photo was taken.

This might or might not be the same cop. He had plastic green beads wrapped around his right handlebar and also had a large knife in his boot (see above). His motorcycle plates read "M 24" (see next photo above). I personally show him violently shove two people over as he road by them during the march.
