An NYPD sergeant scuffles with an anti-police protester in the East Village while trying to complete an arrest. During the march, the officer attempted to arrest a participant but was delayed when several other protesters attempted to pull the individual free. A melee ensued and the group was brought down to the pavement before several other officers intervened and completed the arrest.
A group of several hundred protesters gathered in Manhattan, marching late into the evening against police brutality. Marching to chants like "NYPD hey hey hey, how many kids did you kill today?" the group moved through the Lower East Side and East Village late into the night, taking to the streets throughout before ending in Union Square. At various points, individual protesters attempted to block the line of scooter-mounted police by tossing trash bags and street dividers onto the road, resulting in several arrests. Photos by C.S.
