[ RALLY page | PARADE page ]

The Parade Route
After several hours of preparations, and rallying, the parade began at around 1pm going across 59th Street toward Lexington Avenue. That day, because of construction between Park and Lexington the march detoured up Park to 60th St, where it crossed over to Lexington Ave (Bloomingdales). Originally, the police allocated two traffic lanes for the parade, not much. After negotiation, the sidewalk was included, and a delay ensued as police lines were rearranged. Finally, the parade started its grand march down Lex on its way to the Citicorp Building at 53rd Street, site of rally point number two. There were a large number of protesters at Citicorp, those that didn't want to stay, staggered away over to 2nd Ave, down toward 46th Street, and after another short delay, west again to Park Avenue, and the Waldorf.

There were some arrests that day, and police harassment at what was supposed to be a peaceful march. For details of the day's events and arrests, view the logs at the NYC IndyMedia Center.
