Watching the parade from the skyway
Raw footage, 33-minute version. I covered the protest for Indymedia. About 200 people marched through downtown Minneapolis to protest Obama's Afghanistan surge. Eleven people sat down in an intersection and were arrested. No other arrests were reported. Regarding the organizer's claims that "Marchers effectively shut down the streets of downtown Minneapolis for several hours", this meant walking down a single lane in two lane traffic escorted by the cops, and "blocking an intersection" meant sitting down over part of one of the quietest, lowest impact intersections of about 40 the marchers walked through all night. It would have been interesting to see how the cops would have reacted if the marchers had blocked Hennepin or Nicollet, or Nicollet on another night during the Holidazzle parade. In any case, the point was well made, and made without anything terrible happening. According to local anti-war activist Ross Rowley, the MPD have a history of "live and let live" for unpermitted marches that aren't out of hand in downtown Minneapolis. During the march, the police had a line of horses between the marchers' lane and oncoming traffic to keep things safe and called ahead to have traffic stopped at intersections for the unpermitted march. 10 minute, 5 minute, and "time's up" warnings were given to disperse before arrests. Bar some clumsy police handling/dragging of the intersection-blocking arrestees, the cops behaved as one would hope they would. But it was a good protest ...
A couple bits from the 09-10 Cooper Chamber Singers at the Mpls Hyatt and in the Holidazzle Parade following it. (Sorry, Shot VideoDad Style, so extended Closeups of Nate mandatory). Bad audio on the parade was the float's sound (and maybe some parade watchers???), not the Singers!

The Holidazzle Parade happens every year down MPLS on Nicollet Avenue... during the dead of winter. It's fun and crazy cold with lot's of lights and very, very "HAPPY" people. This past year we (WCCO) presented it for the first time in HD. This is also my first HD piece and part of a larger graphics package that I designed.

Where can people gather in public in Minneapolis to celebrate Christmas? I guess at the Macy's Annual Holiday Show or else watching the Holidazzle Parade. That's about it, it guess. www.floralgarden.org
