Greetings from Vancouver # 1

Clog the Heart of the city. Autonomous demo, pretty much a non-starter.

Peaceful until Cambie Street. From then on metro and other newspaper boxes began to litter the streets.

Others were used as missiles into the Hudson Bay store window, TD Bank. Some grafitti on olympic vehicles.

Riot police with large guns appeared on Georgia. Peaceful demo well and truly over.

Saw several people being led away - cherry picking.

A charge by police on activists further down Georgia failed.

A later charge managed to get activists surrounded, on Robson.

Pretty much cat and mouse by this time. Protestors chants "Let them go" or "Peace" ringing a bit hollow given the violence post Cambie.
