Contact the FBI and ask that they open an investigation of the officers involved under 18 USC § 242 - Deprivation of rights under color of law:

Whoever, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom, willfully subjects any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States ... shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both; and if bodily injury results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include the use, attempted use, or threatened use of a dangerous weapon, explosives, or fire, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both;

It is obvious to any sane person that there is no way a police officer can honestly mistake spare glitter falling from a sign as a chemical or biological terror weapon, and that the arrest was a pretext.

You want a surreal experience?  Read "The Grapes of Wrath" while this shiat is going on.  The parallels are insane.  Back then, they arrested protesters on the basis of being "reds."  Today, it's "terrorists."  And the rich keep laughing.

and said, "Kid, whad'ya get?" I said, "I didn't get nothing, I had to pay
$50 and pick up the glitter." He said, "What were you arrested for, kid?"
And I said, "Glittering." And they all moved away from me on the bench
there, and the hairy eyeball and all kinds of mean nasty things, till I
said, "And creating a nuisance." And they all came back, shook my hand,
and we had a great time on the bench, talkin about crime, mother stabbing,
father raping, all kinds of groovy things that we was talking about on the

That, and the TransCanada urging police to charge non violent protestors as terrorists really leaves me with a sick feeling in my stomach. Or it could be the banana I just ate, it was a bit brown. No, it's definitely these schlubs. That's terrible.
