10h04, we get a message: Protest rally going-on, please avoid downtown.
This usually means one of a few things:
1. There are like fifty people with signs protesting
2. There are a hundred angry people protesting
3. It's actually unsafe to proceed downtown.
More often than not, it's usually the first option. These days, who knows.
Update 14h32: Our Security staff told the protestors to go home. They did. As if this place isn't confusing enough.
