Around midday on Friday August 26th about 30-40 people met at a park in the Summerhill neighborhood before marching two blocks to a Brassfirled and Gorrie job site at the corner of Fulton and Hank Aaron Drive, chanting as they approached the building. They quickly piled into the building before the site manager knew what was going on.
The group wandered around the building continuing to chant before a short speech was given, directed at B&G. As the group left, chanting “Will be back”, the site manager (identified by his Brassfiled and Gorrie hard hat) followed them, antagonizing members of the group and filming. As the group left the building a brief scuffle broke out at the doorway. A lone police officer ran up but the crowd stayed together and continued to safely make their way back to the point where they met to disperse. The crowd left before backup arrived.
In the following hour the police made 8 arrests in the surrounding neighborhood under suspicion of participation in this demonstration.
