New York City, NY: WIld Weekend in NYC

Friday a.m. :

A wild student occupation at the New School complete with balaclava
wearing occupiers, police state tactics, and a mini-riot.

Friday night:
Solidarity march leaves Union Square throwing barricades in the street,
and heads for scum bag New School president Bob Kerrey's house.
March makes it to site of occupation at 65 5th Avenue.
Arrests and clashes ensue, more barricades in the street.

Saturday a.m.:
The 3rd annual NYC Anarchist Book fair sets up shop selling anarchist
commodities of all shapes and sizes.
Workshops and other events are held as well.

Saturday night:
Following the Bookfair a gathering called "Catastrophe" takes place, meeting once again in Union Square.
The cats move into the subway where a brief scuffle happens as police attempt to arrest
a party goer who is unarrested and escapes.
The cats exit the train at 1st ave and 14th street where chaos ensues and the party somehow becomes
a bizarre march/ happening that confuses many including police.
Windows of Mcdonalds, Washington Mutual, and Whole Foods are reportedly smashed as the
unruly and scattered mob winds its way around the East Village moving towards the New School building
at 65 5th avenue, which is quickly surrounded by police.

Reportedly there where 30 arrests made in these various events, and two police were apparently injured.

And the warm weather isn't even here yet!!!!
