(Before It's News)

VANCOUVER – Guesstimates went as high as 15,000-30,000 for the turnout last night to a take back the streets May Day event that had Vancouver Police solidly outnumbered. The event was hosted by Vancouver Anti- Capitalist Mayday 2015 .

The VPD tried to set up containment lines as soon as the huge crowd moved onto Commercial Drive around 10pm. They managed to push and shove a number of people and pepper spray a few more, but couldn't contain the partying crowd.

Initial reports say three people were arrested, but several were de-arrested when police tried to grab them out of the crowd.

The party atmosphere prevailed and the VPD had to stand by and watch as the party danced and marched behind Solidarity with Baltimore and We Love This Coast banners. People hung out on couches and chairs commandeered into the street.

As of 12 midnight the numbers were thinning,  but the party was still going strong.
