More Arrests at Occupy Fresno

15 more arrests took place early this morning at Courthouse Park as Occupy Fresno continues to stand up for Free Speech. This brings to nearly 100 the number of people arrested since November 6. The photo below shows those risking arrest, shortly before they were arrested.

Saturday evening started with a General Assembly (GA) attended by a little more than 100 people. The GA, which started at 11 p.m. was designed to get more people to support the Occupy Fresno activists who are willing to risk arrest by staying in the park until after midnight. A county ordinance prohibits people gathering in the park from 12 - 6 a.m. It also prohibits more than 9 people gathering without a permit. The sheriff’s department changed the pattern of arrests this morning by holding off until about 2 a.m. before making arrests. They usually make the arrests shortly after midnight.

There were about 50 people standing vigil on the sidewalk on the side of the park when the arrests took place. As the lines of sheriffs marched into the park, Occupy Fresno members chanted “Hell No, We Won’t Go, Occupy Fresno.”
