Tulsa, OK – More arrests of Occupy group in Tulsa park
TULSA, Okla. (AP) Police in Tulsa have again arrested protesters with the Occupy Tulsa group for violating the city's park curfew.
At least six people were arrested after 11 p.m. Wednesday at H.A. Chapman Centennial Green. A dozen people were arrested and police did not use pepper spray in the latest round of arrests.
The arrests come after 10 people were arrested about 2:30 a.m. Wednesday after city officials decided to begin enforcing Tulsa's 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew at city parks.
Members of the group had been camping at the park since Friday in protest of what they call corporate greed.
Members of the group say they plan to ask the Tulsa City Council for a permit that would allow them to remain in the park during curfew hours.
