Whilst I'm sure it matters to the protesters, it doesn't matter to me. :)

They've got a constitutional right to free speech and to assemble
peaceably. There were some that were breaking windows and such, and the
people in the crowd shouldn't have allowed that, nor should they have
hung around those kinds of people. However, that does not grant police
authority to suppress them all.

I don't honestly know what they're protesting about either, I just know
that these individuals weren't protesting anything, and got maced.
