Some protest

They could have gone back to Lot 3 and resumed their protest of PNWER, but at that point it would have seemed like the police were doing the protesters a favour, and the activists wouldn’t take anything the police offered. Some of the demonstrators suggested sitting down at the intersection and getting arrested, but cooler heads chickened out – after all, was the PNWER and the PNWER conference really worth getting arrested for?

If the protesters had been more organized and made an effort to communicate with the media and curious onlookers, I just might have the answer to that question.
