yeah. most of what's been said is in line with my own experience. at one point along the spontaneous march, a number of us attempted to get on the mass pike by pushing through a line of 5-7 semi-riot cops (the ones without faceplates but with those big wooden sticks). we had to do some unarrests, and i saw two people hit/run over by motorcycle cops and at least one person hit in the face with a truncheon (not too hard i think). during that time i heard that people were being arrested elsewhere in the march, but haven't heard anything about it.

in general, the police seemed relatively few in number and really didn't seriously challenge anything we did except the mass pike thing. a few of them were pushing, shoving as early as the march from harvard, but not many. i even heard that there was some disagreement between the police about what to do. it was a very interesting night.

i am sure that things will become more interesting in the near future.
