May Day - Part 2 : Some Pictures of the Parade

At Astor Place and Broadway the parade stops as the police arrest several individuals who according to witnesses would not remove the masks that they were wearing . Wearing a mask at a political demonstration is , under a law that has been on the books since the 19th century , a crime and is a behavior that is rarely tolerated by NYPD . The marchers were not all that well behaved here as they spread across Broadway and it seemed to some witnesses that there might be a small riot .

After a several minute halt to the downtown progress of the marchers the police finally restore order and the parade moves on .
