I just got back from the Halliburton protest here in Houston, and
Advertisements [?]
Houston cops lost it.

We were on the sidewalk and they rode their horses on the sidewalk into the crowd knocking some people over, I was one them.

Some of them had homemade two foot billy clubs and they used them, swinging them in the air and two cops I saw us them to hold to men down.

One man was arrested just for crossing the street. The big brave cops even got rought with a old woman.

I heard that 8 people were arrested inside the hotel, and about 8 more outside.

I quess the cops thought we would leave when they started this but we started to yell back and didn't back down.

I am proud everyone who was there, from now on think of this protest when you think of Houston.

I am sorry I don't have any pictures to download but if you go to
Houston India Media pictures and video's will be there soon.

Also all the tv stations covered the protest, so video will be there also.
