2:08 pm: Rhetoric getting progressively angrier and more incendiary. Lots of references to “pigs” and “killer cops” and how they’re going to fight back.

The guy talking now is complaining about “2000 years of oppression.”

4:33 pm – This is protest is endless. The eternal parade if speakers is killing the dwindling crowd, most of whom are Cleary bored and distracted.
