A Shattered Illusion: "Business as Usual"
A self-described anarchist group, The RNC Welcoming Committee, also hints at more disruption as the Convention week unfolds.
The RNC Welcoming Committee, a self-described anarchist group that has worked for months planning convention disruptions, claimed success in e-mails to its members and media. "The spectacle has been crashed!" read one.
The group, which wasn't officially connected to the organizers of either Monday or Tuesday's march, hinted at more trouble.
"We are excited about what the next few days may bring now that the illusion of business as usual has been shattered," said Rose DaBarr, a spokeswoman for the group, said at a news conference Tuesday.
Tuesday's march was organized by the Poor People's Economic Human Rights Campaign.
Spokeswoman Cheri Honkala said the march would deviate from the permitted path to go by the county jail, where some of those arrested Monday remained. Honkala said marchers wanted the event to be nonviolent.
Police said they were ready for problems.
