Video: Cops and anticapitalist/anticolonial protesters fight in the street during the Fuck Columbus march in San Francisco

Update: At the 5-min. 37-sec. mark in the video, a cop shoves journalist Steve Rhodes who’s clearly on the sidewalk trying to photograph people getting arrested.

Video of the Oct. 6, 2012 Fuck Columbus / anticapitalist march in San Francisco by @pfailblog shows a cop getting hit by what looks like a balloon filled with purple paint.

Cops say they arrested around 22 people on charges including conspiracy, riot, and assault and battery on a cop. At least one livestreamer, @thepellareport, was streaming when the cops arrested him.

Here are some basic street tactics for reporting on the civil unrest.
