May 22, 2012: an ongoing student strike, involving hundreds of thousands of university students in Québec, reached its 100th day. In New York, hundreds of students, teachers, and Occupy Wall Street participants marched in solidarity with the students of Québec.
The march was peaceful with very few arrests. Here are some of the arrests:
I: First Arrest.
A protestor is apprehended. A tug-of-war ensues, as a group of protestors attempt to rescue their comrade from arrest. This leads an NYPD officer to pull out and swing his baton at the crowd.
II: Longest Arrest.
A young man is tackled by several NYPD officers to the ground. It takes multiple officers several minutes to complete the arrest. Meanwhile, NYPD are distracted by some sort of object that flies through the air and lands near them. The tense situation is only diffused when a commanding officer (white shirt) intervenes.
III: Counter-Terrorism Officer Makes Arrests.
A large man in an "NYPD Counter-Terrorism" uniform was seen throughout the evening's march. As the demonstration grew, he took command, pointing at the people he wanted arrested, and even making some dramatic arrests himself. What is seen in this video is the NYPD taking over the sidewalk to cut our march in half. A commanding officer (white shirt) appears to announce that the sidewalk is "temporarily closed." Then the Counter-Terrorism Officer is seen barking out orders, even telling the white-shirted commanding officers what to do. In the first arrest, the Counter-Terrorism Officer helps tackle a young man to the ground. Then he picks out a man with a bicycle for arrest, leading to a long chase, and finally, another arrest. He physically and verbally threatens other marchers with arrest.
One wonders why the NYPD would assign a top "Counter-Terrorism" official to a peaceful march of a few hundred people expressing their desire for free public higher education and showing solidarity with those who have similar feelings elsewhere. Is this "terrorism"?!
