I've been listening to the audio feeds as well as watching the live satellite footage since early this morning. The "Anarchists" they're referring
to are a specific large group of individuals that showed up this morning. (a couple thousand) They're comprised of several activist groups basically
supporting each other.
The reporters on the streets kept calling this group "anarchists" by name. They're the main group that showed up to protest illegally, meaning they
didn't have a permit. The security decided to let them have their "march" anyway, but stopped them when they got 1.5 miles away from the convention
center where the summit was being held.
Rather than coming to a head at 34th St. where they first met up, the large group basically broke into smaller groups and headed off down the side
streets. I imagine they'll be in the area through tomorrow, as many of them came from a good distance away.
They'll most likely be giving the security a headache tonight, breaking windows and causing general mayhem, since some of them are probably drinking
and feeling bullet-proof and anti-establishment.
They certainly aren't referring to anyone here at ATS or people listening in at home to their scanner frequencies.
edit to add: Listening to scanner frequencies most certainly isn't illegal, however, it is illegal to use your scanner in any way during the course
of a crime.
In fact, some smaller towns that still have volunteer fire departments use scanners at home, and on their person, to find out the Johnson place is on
I used mine at the air show last week to monitor the tower, the pilots, security, and everybody else I could pick up.
