Occupy protesters face more arrests, threats to encampments
As the Anti-Wall Street protests that began in New York City near the end of their second month, occupations in a number of cities continue to face police harassment, arrests and threats to their encampments. The protests began September 17 in New York City when protesters set up the Occupy Wall Street camp in Lower Manhattan.
In California, sheriff’s deputies arrested nine Occupy Fresno protesters early Tuesday morning. Protesters have been camping in a city park for four weeks, but arrests began after their facility-use permit expired last week and a county ordinance banning use of the park between midnight and 6 a.m. took effect.
Tuesday’s arrests followed arrests the two previous days. Eight protesters were arrested on Monday and 13 on Sunday. Protesters have vowed to remain at the park every night.
In Riverside, east of Los Angeles, 11 protesters were arrested near City Hall Sunday afternoon after several demonstrators refused police orders to remove their tents from the public plaza.
