J20 report from the street

A Radical Reference member called in and said the cops blocked the street at the Black Bloc march. Things were heating up so she and some others headed into a CVS by the NARA. A bit later when they tried to leave people were running by outside the store and CVS wouldn't let anyone else into the store "unless they look like republicans." Sounded a little haggard. She was concerned another Radical Reference member was caught up in the chaos since she couldn't reach her by cell phone.

I called the other Radical Reference member and she's fine. She and her group went to the DAWN and then anti-authoritarian (Black Bloc?) march and are now with the Republicans. She hadn't heard of the mess reported earlier and all is good with her.
