Woohoo we now have a human chain (arms locked) and human megaphone going down. They are really getting serious now! This is sooo intimidating. LMAO
One just got dragged from the crowd and arrested!
Back to Beaver & Broad group, police just cleared them out of Broad; ‘mic check’ groupthink called for move to Broadway & Wall but of course, everyone is doing their own thing.
Here is the WSJ article from October 15, 2011:
