Some 2000 protesters marched through the streets of Vancouver and stood toe-to-toe with a human barricade of police bodies and mounted officers at the BC Place perimeter. An egg was thrown, some traffic pylons were pushed overhead into police lines and several wooden poles were yanked out of protesters' hands up front. Police officers did not react with force. Some pushing and posturing ensued between protesters and police on the front lines, but the crowd began to disperse after a few hours.
This was an exciting event to cover as a citizen journalist. I shot a couple hours video, stay tuned for my YouTube highlight reel.
