Eric Chase describes how after the police split up a huge block of protesters at Pikes Market, one faction tried to get out of the city by going North on 1st. They ran into a trap the police had set up on 1st and Broad. They were surrounded and arrested...about 300, people I hear.

Liz Guy - explains what the Direct Action Network's role was in shutting down the city around the Convention Center. She talks about tactics and a bit about nonviolence training.

Ok so I cut out the part with the housemates coming downstairs in their underwear for breakfast but I couldn't resist keeping in the cat trying to climb up the side of the refrigerator. All in good fun.
