Inauguration Tickets Sell Out in Under a Minute

By Ben Trott

5,000 tickets for Obama's inauguration parade on sale to the public are said to have sold out in under a minute, according to CBS News.

Meanwhile, MSNBC are quoting the Chief of Police in Washington DC as saying no protests by anarchists are expected at the inauguration this year. Previous years saw large protests against the inauguration of George W. Bush at the beginning of both his first and second terms.

As reported on this blog a couple of days ago, anarchists and others are expected to attend the inauguration events - with a 'presence' rather than 'protest' - in critical solidarity with those 'who see in the Obama campaign the possibility of their own agency.'
