Riot Gear

I got an email from Jesse of pith.org fame -- go read his beautifully written post from early this morning -- about the fact that he only saw well-behaved police. I agree that I only saw that, except that as I got close to the end I saw more and more police officers wearing riot gear on the site streets. I finished the march around 3:30.

Tom Moody has a good photo of NYPD in riot gear from yesterday. We all know displays like this are meant to intimidate, even when we've had hours of peaceful marching so far.

Our group's Pink Triangle Peace Symbol (with glitter!) shows up in pith.org's photos of the march.
