Police attacked us

The police stopped our march before we could reach the other side and then started trying to force us to turn around (the permit said we had to be off at 2pm and it was 1:30 so they said we wouldn't be off in time). When some protested they started getting violent, arresting anyone if they walked too slow, using pepper spray, etc.
Later, they attacked us while we tried to leave the parking lot, rushing us from behind - literally making us run to keep from falling - with their batons on our backs. They grabbed a young Arab girl and dragged her violently away from our group. Others locked arms so they could take any more and we all chanted for them to stop their violence.
