Cornel Westand other important people are doing a Civil Disobedience and are expected to be arrested. List of supporters of this march from a Huffington Post article:

The reports come on the same day as the Associated Press reported on an intelligence program focusing on Muslim communities.

“The NYPD is making entire New York City neighborhoods Constitution-free zones,” said Donna Lieberman, the executive director of the New York Civil Liberties Union…
