From the streets 8/13

by AIM Monday, Aug. 14, 2000 at 8:35 PM

Today's march-how it felt

The way i saw it, from pershing square...people started showing up as early as 9am. there was a overwhelming presence of police on bike, cruisers, motorcycles...the people's presence was positive and strong at pershing square alot of noise was made and music was blazing. dolores fuertes and larry holmes spoke. by the time the march left pershing square, it 5,000 or more bodies. people took over the entire street from 5th and olive to the corner infront of staples center at olympic and figueroa. police in semi-riot gear flanked the protest route...no altercations were seen or reported. heat was the biggest problem, there should have been more water and medical support for the protesters. Mumia cry was heard along with many other causes present: three strikes, police brutality, animal rights, leonard peltier, bisonette, and way way too many others to represent. i'm out...the revolution will continue.
