Anti-Trump protesters block traffic in town center this busy Sunday morning
After about 5 minutes APD "moved them along"
One of the criticisms of the huge gathering of Vets and their supporters at last week's Hampshire College "Raise The Flag" protest was, well, they were scary.
That many people waving American flags is scary to some I guess.

But certainly none of them were accused of breaking any laws and neither APD or AFD had to respond to the scene.
This morning in Amherst town center a crowd of anti-Trump protesters used their God given, err, Founding Father given right to assemble and use their Free Speech on the Town Common which has seen protests like that for over 350 years.
But then before the rally/demonstration dispersed they blocked traffic on South Pleasant street at a busy time of the morning inconveniencing those average citizens going about their business.
The specific target of their blockade I suppose was to stop a patriotic convoy that left Whately and toured through UMass and were enroute to Hampshire College.
The rally had been planned a few weeks ago and was to coincide with yet another "Raise The Flag" rally which was canceled at the last minute due to a gracious VFW leadership.
An admirable trait these downtown protesters seem to know nothing about.
