Three Arrested In Harvard Square: Stand for Security

Three people stood firm. They stayed until they blocked traffic…

…and they were handcuffed.
The guy in the red hat is Steve Meachem, one of Cambridge’s establishment radicals. I believe he is a necessitarian, but I respect him. When not being arrested he works very hard to help people in very direct ways – without fanfare. I’m somewhat of a nominalist – ideas are not ends in themselves; they are tools. I met Steve through Eviction Free Zone. Not a bad group. Tom Potter was shouting something at Emerson Harris. O’brien was already gone. She was coming in Johnston Gate as I was going out. They are competing necessitarians. The person in the green dayglo hat is a Lawyer’s Guild legal observer. The man standing to Steve’s left, Jeff Feuer, is also a legal observer but he’s wearing a black hat. Dude! You’re out of uniform! Doesn’t matter, I’m sure all the cops – Cambridge and Harvard – know who he is.

I was too slow, but they were put in the wagon.
