About the anti-war arrests—I've been trying to find an impartial account of what happened at that rally, Dez. I think Squeek has described it fairly accurately. There's no doubt there was a large armed police presence, that protesters did cross police barricades, and that many were "voluntarily" arrested—that is, their aim was to draw attention to their cause by being arrested. There was also a smaller but very vocal pro-war group present and part of the barricading was done to keep the two groups apart and avoid general mayhem.
