Hunter texted and asked me to update his page. Protesters are being held about a quarter mile from airport. Army feel back, police just fell back and it appears they are letting the protesters to the airport. No violence so far. Protesters are self policing. One protester threw a rock and hit a policeman. Police did not respond and protesters pushed the young man back to the back of the crowd. They have been negotating with the police and appear to have gotten access to the airport after promising no violence.
Rumor on the ground is that Mel is on his way and should land in an hour. Just rumors in the crowd. Will update when I hear more from Hunter. He has been with the crowd since morning when they marched on the airport @ 11:30 central time.
