And they're off

Posted By on Thu, Sep 24, 2009 at 12:50 PM

A student feeder march -- numbering roughly two dozen people -- is headed from Friendship Park in Bloomfield to Arsenal Park, where they will meet up with a larger contingent of demonstrators planning an unpermitted march.

Currently, though, "There are more media here [at Arsenal] than marchers," says Marty Levine. (Though he notes that with the rise of citizen jouranlism "it's hard to tell which is which.") Levine estimates only 150 protesters. 

Meanwhile, police in riot gear are suiting up just a few blocks away, near Liberty and 38th. We also have a report of police setting up along Harrisburg and Main.

Meanwhile, there's also a small protest taking place near the intersection of Liberty Ave. and 7th street. Roughly two dozen police -- outnumbering the protesters by roughly two-to-one -- are standing nearby. 

More coming soon.
