Phoenix: Police attack crowd at Anti-Arpaio March

From the Phoenix Class War Council:

We couldn’t agree with Sal Reza more when he says, “There was provocation by some groups who came here for their own purpose to disrupt a peaceful march.” We know he isn’t talking about us, because he invited members of the Diné, O’odham, anarchist/anti-authoritarian bloc on stage to speak at the rally at Falcon Park.

Unprovoked, a female officer on horseback (who later covered her name on her uniform) charged her horse headlong into the march, colliding with several people and in the process almost running over at least one child in a stroller. After attacking families and protesters, she then whipped out her pepper spray and let loose on the whole crowd, who fled the noxious spew. In the process, children were blasted with pepper spray.
