According to CNN, the number is 400, I have seen passing tweets with numbers up to 2000.

I applaud people willing to take their time out to protest issues, I think we all, are concerned about.

TYT reporter Cenk Yugur aalso arrested.



The video states the arrests were peaceful, there were 'pro police chants'. Also, that is is the highest number of people ever arrested in such a protest.

The article states 'unlawful demonstration activities'. I am not quite sure what that means.

A queue of people "waiting to be arrested"? In effect, volunteering themselves to be arrested in order to make their point? Is that the deal?

Some places in Washington DC are off-limits to protestors. However , following George Soros and moveon.orgs marching orders , they did so anyway.

Apparently, they had the idea they would be arrested if they were asked to leave and did not. It was part of the plan to make a point.

They didn't get in line and wait to be arrested, they were directed to an area to be arrested once refusing to leave.

I wonder if that will make any sort of difference towards the issues they are hoping to push through. Maybe I'm just hopelessly pessimistic about these things...but I doubt 400 or even 3500 will make any difference.

I think you over-estimate what you are concerned about, versus the rest of society.

One can always hope. Several thousand more protesters are expected this week.

Getting money out of politics, corruption, corruption in big banks...a whole host of things are being protested. They are things that people complain about on here every day.

I think they have the wrong approach to it and are blaming the wrong things in their quest.

While we can agree on some of the sources of the issues, their paradigm of the problem and solutions involve more government. That is where the dividing line is. More government = more corruption. I would expect no less from Soros Lemmings.

Hence, these precious snowflake SJW's represent a minority of a minority of society.

Where do you see the protesters asking for more government? Suddenly those that protest problems in government are precious snowflake SJWs? Protest is a legitimate tool to bring attention to issues.

That argument, although somewhat true, is a bit of a fallacy:



They are protesting things that we should ALL worry and care about. Sure Occupy Wall Street was a farce that didn't really get anything done, but if this election cycle has taught us anything, is that even people who should have NO chance to get things done, may be the only people who do.

Why is protesting a wrong approach? Which things are they blaming that you find to be incorrect?

I have seen their list of demands to increase government regulations. Voter registration, banking controls, pretty much the current social progressive wet dreams.
