The Chicago protests are heating up. Several demonstrations moved into one, including at least one blackbloc protest. A few arrests and wrestling between the crowd and police, the protestors just broke through a police line. The police "surrounded" the apartment where a few indy streamers were based at.
Earlier the police were trying to route the protestors and the whole mob took off running through a parking lot to the next street, so far they have broken about 2-3 intersections where the police where trying to hold them. They also made it past the park that occupy had confrontations with the police last year, can't remember the name.
Not sure how big it is, looks like quite a few people. As the night falls this could get intense, this is the stuff the MSM should be reporting on.
Mods if this is better suited for another section then by all means move it.edit on 19-5-2012 by RSF77 because: (no reason given)

Yeah, I can't stop watching either. I don't like large crowds so being able to watch LIVE streams from the protesters is perfect. I can kick back, have a beer and enjoy the mayhem.
I'm watching the Occupy Eye feed right now. Good connection and he's right in there, good commentary.

Wow, they are draped in armor. Even the horses have face masks! If there is any city in America where things could go haywire, it is Chicago in early summertime.
