2 Harassment Arrests, 2 "Standing in a Parking Spot" Cites at Freedom Sleepers Protest #10
by Robert Norse
The 10th Freedom Sleepers Sleep Out at City Hall attracted nearly 20 sleepers--even after two massive raids by the police, colder/wetter weather, and At least 4, perhaps 5, agendas were posted describing city government commission meetings happening in the next 48 hours, but police refused to allow anyone on the supposedly legal passways through the park to view the agendas. One woman, Christina Barnes, was brutally arrested by two (out of five) First Alarm Security guards for "touching" a First Alarm security thug who was insisting she leave at a time when the park was openl; Food Not Bombs Abbi Samuels was arrested for crossing the street with a coffee container for the protest. Activists continued to sleep on sidewalks adjoining City Hall and the library afterwards.
