There was an overwhelming reaction from inside, with prisoners banging on windows, yelling, chanting with one another, dancing and even setting fires in cells and dropping flaming objects out windows. A mixture of political messages and friendly banter continued until the cops showed up at about 11:20pm.
There was a standoff for 15 minutes after the cops threatened to make arrests if the demo continued. The mood was lightened by the sound of anti-police chants and slogans coming from behind the prison walls. The demo moved on making more noise at various points around the perimeter of the prison. To avoid arrest, the group moved on for a few minutes before returning at midnight to make more noise in solidarity and to wish the prisoners a happy and free new year.
