At 3pm on Monday Jan 16th, 100 Schools Not Jails! demonstrators held a rally outside of the Central Booking detention facility in East Baltimore City, and marched two blocks southeast to a fenced off lot that is the proposed site of a new $100 million youth jail.

This past  Monday on Halloween eve, Occupy Baltimore participants were allegedly assaulted by Fox 45 News reporter Melinda Roeder and her cameraman (unable to identify) as they were producing a story on a dispute between participants that was occurring and being mediated privately at the McKeldin Square site.

On a frigid Saturday evening, five dozen or so folks convened at the alligator-marked Open Space in Remington, Baltimore for what was sure to be a delving panel discussion “On Punk”.
