On March 26 the Colorado Springs Socialists (CSS) held a “March Against Imperialism”. About 15 people participated in this small demonstration meant to denounce militarism overseas. Six members of the group were arrested for jaywalking while marching. A court case revealed that two cops infiltrated the Colorado Springs Socialists.
