Reactivation of Occupy Minneapolis ends in arrests

| No Comments

Police arrested a number of people involved in the Occupy movement Saturday night when displaced protesters took to the streets and impeded traffic.
Starting at around noon demonstrators began to gather at Peavey Plaza and Loring Park in Minneapolis in an attempt to refuel the fire that the Occupy movement had last fall, the Star Tribune reported.
Demonstrators set up tents at Peavey Plaza in order to take shelter from the rain and the trouble started later when police ordered the tents to be taken down at around 8 p.m.
Activists disassembled the tents and marched to the other Occupy location at Loring Park, chanting and stopping cars along the way.
"They were blocking traffic and refusing to disperse," sergeant Steve McCarty told the Star Tribune.
Kare 11 reported the number of arrests to be 12 while the Star Tribune put the number to be around 15.
