March leaders are calling on people to “meet us at 7th precinct… in Manhattan to show solidarity with our sisters who were arrested.”

Some of the national leaders for the Women’s March on Washington and the “A Day Without A Woman” strike were arrested outside Trump International Hotel in NYC on Wednesday.

The Day Without A Woman gathering began on the southeast corner of Central Park at noon. Around 1 p.m., according to Patch, a few hundred protestors marched across town to the Trump International Hotel, intending to attempt to form a human chain around the property. According to Isaac Saul, a reporter at A Plus who was there, NYPD arrived shortly after protesters did, and gave warnings to all to keep off the street.

Saul told HuffPost that the NYPD told everyone at the rally that “anyone who did not keep off the street would be arrested for disorderly conduct.”

“Organizers urged participants who were not willfully participating in civil disobedience to leave,” Saul told us.

Saul said that half of the crowd did leave at that point, but Linda Sarsour did not. Sarsour is a prominent Muslim American activist and co-chair of the Women’s March on Washington.

She, along with 12 others, including fellow Women’s March co-chairs Tamika Mallory, Carmen Perez and Bob Bland were arrested.

“[The NYPD] put [Sarsour] in a paddy wagon and protestors surrounded it, singing and chanting for her release,” said Saul.

The Women’s March organizers put out a statement through PR firm Sunshine Sachs, confirming the arrests: “After a peaceful protest in New York City in honor of A Day Without a Woman, 10 organizers were arrested by the New York City Police Department in an act of civil disobedience.”

The NYPD later confirmed that 13 demonstrators had been arrested.

9/11: Explosive Evidence -- Experts Speak Out
by Architects & Engineers for 911 Truth

The 43 technical experts interviewed in Experts Speak Out lay out the case for controlled demolition from their individual areas of expertise in hi-rise architecture, structural engineering, metallurgy, chemistry, physics, and controlled demolition. The seeming implausibility of the implications of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers being demolished with explosives is also handled quite skillfully in the film, as eight experts in psychology discuss the difficulties many people have in confronting the myth-shattering reality. This is a newly released DVD.

Reviews: Excellent Item for Travel, Backpacking, Camping, Etc.

This radio is a great little investment. It does exactly everything it states it should. On a 60 second crank I got hours of play. I ran the radio completely dead by leaving the light on and the radio playing at half column. I let the radio play like this with the light on for at least an hour before it went dead. I then put it out in the sun and let it charge with the solar charger for about four hours and then turned the radio on and let it play for only about an hour and then just didn't want to complete the experiment. I am very pleased with this radio. 60 seconds of cranking for hours of play is very reasonable. Letting it charge out in the sun and getting hours of play is very reasonable. I have other brands like this in the past that you would crank for 5 to 10 and get maybe 10 minutes of play.

The USB charge does work, but know that it will not charge an iPhone 3Gs. This is more a problem/restriction of the iPhone 3Gs (a widely discussed complaint across the Internet for many-many generic charging devices) and is not because of the radio. Charging my old Samsung phone was not a problem.
