Reports are sketchy. There is a youtube video that clearly shows police fencing protesters in by holding their bicycles in front of them. 

Twitter reports using the #NatGat hashtag report that a number of livefeed people have also been arrested. Tweets also suggest that the marchers were charged with obstructing a highway. 

Dustin Slaughter, part of the #Natgat media team and a freelance journalist told Opednews,

There are 28 Confirmed arrests. They will be released in next 3-4 hours. 
No charges yet, but one civil affairs officers said it might be obstructing a highway. 
They want to send a message to the people not to interfere with the July 4th cash cow-- tourist volume for the next three days. The city is skittish about marchers disrupting. 
Two of the livestreamers were arrested, one from Portland and one from Philly. There is speculation that they may start going after livestreamers. 
Using bicycles to control marchers, put up blockades and as weapons sometimes is the MO of the Philadelphia police.

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
