Occupy The DNC 2012 - Charlotte, NC

Part of an Occupy Wall Street march during the 2012 Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. We had marched from Marshall Park down a street along large heavy steel barriers erected for security, and took a left turn along the route following the fence line. We made it to the intersection cordoned off by the police on bicycles and dirt bikes(. The police began to persuade us to enter a large cage dubbed "the free speech zone" or "protected first amendment areas". It was a giant cage they wanted all of these "leftist" protestors to voluntarily enter. This was just the beginning of it as we faced a wall of bicycle cops.
