The police were walking alongside, in front and behind us, controlling our flow and guiding us ONTO the roadway! In the confusion, most of us either didn't realize what was going on or thought we were being allowed to march on the bridge as long as we stayed to the side, which has been the case in our past marches. The cops worked to ENSURE that many would be trapped on the bridge. They didn't tell us to take the pedestrian walkway with megaphones until AFTER getting tons of us onto the road and it was too late!

I'm shocked that the demonstrators/protesters just 'followed' the police!
Talk about putting your trust in the wrong place!
But on the other hand, I guess you can't (or shouldn't be able to) be arrested for 'following' police 'directions'.
Hope someone has video/photographic proof of this for the inevitable trial.

Warnings? People screaming take the bridge? seems like someone isn't telling the truth?

You break the law, you get arrested, it's really that simple.
