On Sunday, Mayor de Blasio also declared anarchist agitators attended the police-brutality protests. In the City Hall press briefing, he blamed the anarchists for taking this opportunity to cause chaos in what is meant to be a nationwide peace demonstration. He said, "It is a small number of people. It is well-organized, even though many of the people are associated with the anarchist movement. Some come from outside of the cities. Some are from inside the city. Some are from the neighborhoods where the protests take place. Some are not."
City Hall did not give any comment on de Blasio's daughter, Chiara's arrest.
