Civil Rights protesters shut down Chinatown, blockade Verizon Center

On the 5th of December, civil rights protesters returned to Chinatown, staging a massive die-in in rush hour traffic before blockading the Verizon Center. In a repeat of the previous night’s scene at the Hyatt/ALEC confrontation, bike cops blocked off the Verizon Center as well, creating a front-line similar to at a very large IMF protest.
