Between March 15 and March 30, 304 Americans were arrested for their participation at antiwar protests. These are documented cases of custodial arrests. A number of the arrests were citations, and some arrested were released within acouple of hours. But they also include people arrested and charged with felonies. All arrested were non-violent. Most who were arrested were involved in civil disobedient actions; a few arrests occurred when police acted aggressively. (Go here to our earlier post on this.]
