Anything going on? Other than two short clips on matzav.com no coverage whatsoever in contrast to last nights minute by minute...
They're egging a house, maybe more than one. Disrupting traffic as well.

Hopefully this will force the roshei yeshivos/menahilim/askanim to get involved
They donít need to necessarily backtrack, but they need to come up with ideas for kosher entertainment/ outlets

Nobody has to do anything. Rabanim have to stop signing every stupid little thing that's shoved in their face, there's a reason that people like R' Meir Stern's haskama means a lot, he never signs anything . You're not going to get people to stop taking these kol koreis seriously, especially in lakewood, what you can do however is try to get rabanim to stop cheapening the value of their haskama by giving it to every dumb thing that some "askan" decided was of the utmost importance for the future of klal yisroel.

Would I do it? No.
Do I care if someone else does it? No.

You're right. Time for Jihad!

I was brought up that one of the yesodos of yiddishkeit is a halacha in SH'A

בכל דרכיך דעהו

וכן בכל מה שיהנה בעולם הזה, לא יכוון להנאתו אלא לעבודת הבורא יתברך, כדכתיב: "בכל דרכיך דעהו" (משלי ג ו), ואמרו חכמים: כל מעשיך יהיו לשם שמיים, שאפילו דברים של רשות, כגון האכילה והשתיה וההליכה והישיבה והקימה והתשמיש
והשיחה וכל צרכי גופך, יהיו כולם לעבודת בוראך

it is 100% kosher to enjoy yourself as long you have the right intentions and this event was nothing short of it

of course ולואי יתפלל אדם כל היום כולו]
but dont forget וחי בהם ולא שימות בהם

now this אדם חשוב feels that he could sit and learn all day, good for you and I wish everyone would be that way, but how could you asur something that does not have a כי הוא זה against halcha and these boys aren't in your jurisdiction?

the only logic that can can justify is if you come with a precedence that I control the community and hey they didn't consult with me I'll get you back.

I said elsewhere - we need to make a shabbos march against these bochrim, better as soon as possible before they stop keeping shabbos...

How was a Kumsitz cancelled but Chol Hamoed trips (Blackbeards cave, Funtime America, Seaside Heights etc...) that raise money for tzedaka is OK?!?! What the heck has happened to the Lakewood of the 1990's it is really sad what is going on nowadays. If only Jersey was a more RED state we would not let in all the refugees from NY!

The first night the boys protesting in the streets had the sympathy of many; by now itís grow up and stop acting like overgrown toddlers. You made your point. Move on. Egging cars the next night and planning further  ďspontaneousĒ demonstrations is just juvenile and brings into question the maturity level of those who are still participating.
