Among the protesters arrested last night was Malcolm London, a poet and activist who witnesses say was falsely accused of hitting a cop. Black aldermen are calling for his release, and the Chicago Community Bond Fund is accepting donations to help cover bail for London and the others who were arrested. UPDATE: Charges have been dropped against London. No word yet regarding the others arrested.
