Police target anarchists in Union Square.

Around 2 pm today, at the LEGAL Mayday Amnesty Rally in Union Square, NY
police arrested about 20 anarchists without any cause or provocation.
The charges pressed against the arrestees are still unknown.

Uniformed and plain clothes police officers encircled and violently
arrested the anarchists, who where simply exercising their
constitutional right to free speach.

The arrest occured during a legal rally, there was no direct action
being taken by anarchists, or any other groups. The police singled out
the anarchists, simply because they looked like anarchists, and we can
expect the same in Philadelphia and San Diego. If there was any doubt
about it know we know that the NYPD are NOT JUST RACISTS, BUT FASCISTS,
ENEMIES OF FREE SPEECH!

SUPPORT THE ARRESTED ANARCHISTS! SOLIDARITY!!
