Anti-War Group Calls Conditions for Arrestees Appalling

New York, NY – An anti-war group staged a protest this morning deploring what it says are appalling conditions at a temporary detention center in New York City. The center is a vacant pier building where those arrested for protesting during the Republican National Convention are taken to be held and processed. The building once served as a bus garage, and the former head of that garage says there is likely asbestos and other causes for concerns. More from WAMC's Hudson Valley Bureau Chief Allison Dunne.
