Nonviolent protest in Atlanta
November 5, 2013 - Police officers arrested 20 more Occupy Atlanta protesters and supporters in and around Woodruff Park for waving signs and shouting. Nineteen of those arrested, police said in a statement, "either refused to leave Woodruff Park after 11 p.m. closing time or impeded Peachtree Street and other city roads by blocking them and not allowing police to open them to normal traffic."
A large contingent of Atlanta police in riot gear, some on motorcycles and horses marching in formation, patrolled Peachtree Street and threatened demonstrators and onlookers with arrest if they didn't remain on the sidewalk. Demonstrators on both sides of the street chanted and held signs. A CL
photo intern was among those arrested.
She was charged with obstructing traffic.
